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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
