Sleep occupies around one third of a person's life and is the subject of research across many disciplines. In this groundbreaking new monograph, Andrew Bishop explores sleep by creatively drawing on resources of the Christian tradition. Sleep is a subject which demands theological attention, because of the central place it occupies in contemporary reflection on what it is to be human. Offering original research, this book investigates sleep for the first time from a theological position, looking at all key questions that a theological treatment of sleep raises, including issues of identity and personhood, sleep and mortality, resurrection, and renewal and healing.

Sleep is a profoundly theological concern. A multitude of biblical sources and images of sleep open up themes around mortality, resurrection and eschatology, and healing. Thought-provoking and creative, Theosomnia examines the nature of sleep through the lens of Christian theology.
