Market "Day" of the Soul
03/24/2011 - Jeff DownsI have been struck lately with the disregard for Sabbath keeping, and I know brothers in Christ differ on this issue, but in this post I want to offer a few resources (pro) on this issue.
First, while not entirely for Sabbath keeping, is a forthcoming title by Broadman & Holman Perspectives on the Sabbath: 4 Views, edited by Christopher Donato (available April 2011). The contributors are: Skip MacCarty (Seventh-day Adventist view), Jospeh A Pipa (Reformed view), Craig L. Blomberg (evangelical view), and Charles P. Arand (Lutheran view). if you click the link you can read a portion of the book.
An additional (new) title, while not dealing with the Sabbath in particular, is important regarding the law is From the Finger of God: The Biblical and Theological Basis for the Threefold Division of the Law.
Other resources include: Call the Sabbath A Delight, by Walter Chantry, Celebrating the Sabbath: Finding Rest in a Restless World, by Bruce Ray and The Lord's Day, by Joseph Pipa. Dr. Pipa was also on The ReformedCast at the beginning of this year, dealing with many objections. Click here to listen.
13"If because of the sabbath, you turn your foot From doing your own pleasure on My holy day,And call the sabbath a delight, the holy day of the LORD honorable, And honor it, desisting from your own ways, From seeking your own pleasure And speaking your own word, 14Then you will take delight in the LORD, And I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; And I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, For the mouth of the LORD has spoken."
