Though Carson contributes to this work, it contains a number of other contributions from excellent authors. In my opinion A.T. Lincoln does a masterful job of honing in on key issues in an evenhanded exegetical manner. If you want a top of the line scholarly work on the Sabbath issue, this is it. Unfortunately, two of the other reviews are very misleading. First, though I can see his passion, one reviewer either failed to read the book, or didn't understand it. He attempts to post a defense of the Sabbath (seventh-day) view in his review. Sadly, it contains many less than convincing points that are thoroughly dealt with in lessor works such as Perspectives on the Sabbath - 4 views, which actually does have a good defense of the seventh-day view by Skip MacCarty. The second review suggests that one must first read Samuele Bacchiocchi before reading this work. Though he is referenced over 50 times, let's put it in perspective. These authors reference close to 1000 works according to their Bibliography, not including Scripture. So, to say one must read Bacchiocchi is very much untrue, however helpful it might be to read his title and others.
Lastly, the title of this work is could be somewhat confusing. This book is NOT an argument for transferring the Sabbath to Sunday. It fact it refutes such a transference theology.
Overall, this is a very solid book written by outstanding scholars who do an excellent job of handling the Biblical text in an evenhanded, exegetical manner. It's a must have.

This book is pricey, but invaluable. It will make you think about the relationship between

the New Testament and the Old Testament

the law of Moses and the law of Christ

the Jewish sabbath and Christian worship

and many other important issues.

The various authors, who were Cambridge post-graduate students, worked together on their book, and have come to quite a close agreement on the issues involved.

From Sabbath to Lord's Day: a Biblical and Theological Perspective by A T Lincoln

The stance of the book is close to New Covenant Theology. The authors do not regard the sabbath as a creation ordinance or as binding for Christians, either as the seventh or first day of the week.

The book is available new, or second-hand from Amazon partners [but sometimes the used copies are even more expensive!] But it is a most stimulating book, and well worth your time.

Highly recommended

If you can handle 400 pages and hundreds of end-notes explaining why Sunday is NOT the "new" Sabbath of the Decalogue, and have plenty of time on your hands and a burning hunger to settle issues that may seem minor or taken for granted, this book is for you!
Seriously, it tackles the subject like I've never read before, with penetrating insight into the biblical and historical meaning of the Sabbath from creation until now, and the genesis and growth of Sunday's significance from New Testament times until now. It covers the sticky subject of the purpose and relevance of the Law of Moses, and touches on other subjects as well, to reach a conclusion that is iron-clad and more relevant to worship practices than one might think. Sources are taken from any and all traditions, sacred and secular, as well as firm bible exegesis. D. A. Carson did well to lend his time and formidable name to this study.

Authors of this volume repeatedly contrast their opinion with Bacchicchi's, so reader have to know Bacchiocchi's "From Sabbath to Sunday" for better understanding this investigation. Carson takes evangelical stand in sabbath/sunday question, but Bacchiocchi presents the Seventh-day adventists view. Both works are valuable and scolarly deep.

Bacchiocchi got golden medal from Pope Paul VI for his dissertation "From Sabbath to Sunday", he made in the Pontifical Gregorian University of Rome, and his work has an Imprimatur of Roman Catholic Church.

Carson in this book try to refute theses of Bacchiocchi, but conclusions there sometimes seems foggy.

So I give four stars.

Each one personally have to evaluate both these books and make own conclusions about meaning of Sabbath today.

It gives great insight to the initial responses and interpretations to the finished work of Christ and then how things would ebb an flow during later periods of time. It was done in a spirit of relating observations for what substantiated their evaluation and not trying to prove another understanding wrong. However, it did a good job of presenting their observations that made it clear what the differences were and why. It has been very helpful for me in that it provided solid reasoning for what I thought I believed, yet i would not have been able to articulate it even to my self.
Unless you have the time, the gift/skill, and motivation for research into the depths and you want to understand why anyone could possibly say that there is a difference about how one commandments requirement could change, then it is a great resource.
