"Bruce Rays book is a wise, balanced, helpful, biblical, and encouragingly fresh look at what the Lords Day should be for every Christian. His work is meant to instruct, but also to stimulate sound thinking and encourage practical application. Each of these eight readable chapters is followed by questions to deepen the perceptions of the reader and promote a God-pleasing response. I do not know what more could reasonably be asked of a book on this subject." --James M. Boice
"A tidal wave of anti-Sabbath influences is crashing against the modern church. . . . Pastor Bruce Ray has made a major effort to shore up our understanding and practice of Sabbath keeping. Celebrating the Sabbath is delightful reading about a recurring day of delight. How we need these principles and wise directions!" --Walter J. Chantry

Also, I particularly appreciated the contrasting discussions of how the Sabbath can be abused with too much laxness of observance (like today's society) or with too much legalism of man-made rules (as with the Pharisees). The book didn't spend much time on the argument of whether it should be observed on Saturday or Sunday, which I was glad because that is not a concern of mine.
So what is the Sabbath to you? Is it an infringement upon your personal liberty and success? Or is it a gift that the Lord has given for rest, worship, and celebration?
With the conclusion of this book, I read my next choice by Marva Dawn "Keeping the Sabbath Wholly." It was a great second choice with a much more indepth approach. It also included more details of what activities can make up a Sabbath day observance.
From the biblical record, it is very clear that the Sabbath is what we call Saturday today, not Sunday. But the writer's conclusion is that Sunday is the Sabbath - a bad and very wrong conclusion.
