Book Summary

(Nacogdoches, TX) Sleep Clinics. Sleeping Pills. Sleep Systems. With all the focus on sleep, it’s obvious to anyone breathing (or not—in the case of sleep apnea) that sleep disorders are on everyone’s minds. Can’t fall asleep. Can’t stay asleep. So many problems, but so few zzzs.
 
Dr. Charles W. Page has been plagued with sleep deprivation his entire adult life. Whether from the rigorous unpredictable lifestyle of a general surgeon or dealing with obstructive sleep apnea, Dr. Page sees sleep as a precious commodity. Many of his surgical patients also report sleep problems on their medical histories. It’s certainly a widespread problem.
 
Although there is extensive medical literature regarding sleep, insomnia and sleep disorders, there is little instruction about these issues from a Christian worldview. Sleep was God’s idea—why shouldn’t we go to the One who created rest in the first place for answers to our sleep problems. One of the reasons Dr. Page wrote Surrendered Sleep was to heighten people’s awareness of the spiritual side of sleep issues, which often goes neglected in health and medical literature.
 
 
BONUS FEATURE: Balin Jam
(chapter 17 from Surrendered Sleep)
Balin jam (“may you pass your night in peace”)—it’s how the Fulani people of western Africa say goodbye. This Fulani expression best captures the message of Surrendered Sleep. Passing your night in peace, from a biblical perspective, involves a whole lot more than sleeping well. It encompasses surrendering every aspect of sleep to God. The prerequisite for having peace as we lay down to sleep is a growing, vibrant relationship with God. Everything in our lives, including sleep, flows out of our pursuit of our loving Father in Heaven. The ability to sleep is a multifaceted gift given by God, who likewise pursues a love relationship with every individual on this planet.... MORE

  1. What a great giveaway. I've never thought to think of my insomnia in any other light...besides it being just as it is. This book sounds amazing, and I can not wait to read it. I've been suffering from insomnia for almost 4 years, since having my daughter (my first born). I don't know if there's any link between the two, but I would love to go to our creator in order to find more solid answers to my sleep issues...or lack thereof. Offering the sleep songs is also a nice bonus, I've never tried them but have heard great things- so I'm eager to try them out. Fingers are crossed, as this is one of the best giveaways I've seen in a very long time. This is a topic that I can relate to, it effects me daily, and I could definitely benefit from this prize...or at least find some temporary relief :) Thanks for this chance.
