The book is highly recommended because it is a clear, fraternal discussion of an issue vital to biblical worship and knowledge of how Christ’s first and second coming consummate our freedom from the curse and fulfill Christ’s promise, “I will give you rest.”

Commendations

In this thorough defense of Sabbatarianism, Jon English Lee captures insights from the entire theological encyclopedia—from exegetical and biblical theology to systematic and historical theology. Lee anticipates and responds to thorny questions like these: Does the fourth commandment bind believers today? Why do we now celebrate the Sabbath on the first day of the week? And what did Paul mean in Colossians 2:16–17? May the Lord use this helpful treatise to renew your delight in the Sabbath as well as your enjoyment of the God who graciously gave it to us (Isa. 58:13–14).

Jon English Lee’s fine work is both timely and a much-appreciated resource for those who want to know how the biblical concept and practice of rest developed over the course of several millennia. I encourage you to read this excellent book!

Gregg R. Allison
Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Jon English Lee illuminates the question of the creation/moral law status of the Sabbath command and gives a masterful synthesis of biblical hermeneutics, historical theology, covenantal development, law/gospel interaction, typology, and the culmination of all this in the work of Christ. The book is highly recommended because it is a clear, fraternal discussion of an issue vital to biblical worship and knowledge of how Christ’s first and second coming consummate our freedom from the curse and fulfill Christ’s promise, “I will give you rest.”
