This book is eminently readable, and highlights the joy to be gained in 'a Sabbath well spent'. (The Monthly Record ~ Magazine of the Free Church of Scotland)
The basic principle of the book, the observance of the Lord's Day as a day of rest and remembrance, will be accepted by many older Christians, but needs to be worked out by some younger Christians. (D E CLC Book Reviews May 1998)
It is a book that will appeal to those who are convinced that the Puritan expression of Sabbath keeping is the best way to use the day. (English Churchman)

I have lots to change in my life now.
One great thing about this book is how often it references the bible and how Pipa doesn't shy away from challenging the views of giant theology teachers such as Calvin and Luther, going as far as quoting what they believe and then showing why its wrong.
I praise God for this good work Pipa, thank you.
The book not just discusses that the Sabbath is no longer the seventh day, but now the Lord's day, the first day of the week, but also makes many practical suggestions for Christians, ministers, and churches how to keep it holy. The Lord's day is a great blessing, and Christians who do not keep it, deprive themselves greatly.
It's unfortunate the author doesn't use the Authorised Version. Christians should speak with a single voice. Using unfamiliar and ever changing translations doesn't help our memory, nor our message.
I highly recommend this book: either if you want to know more if you should keep the Sabbath, or if you simply want to read the best defence currently in print.
Pipa explores the meaning of Is. 58:13,14 to show how the Sabbath day is to be observed. He shows it's not a day to delight is ourselves, but is to be solely Christ-focused, with works of mercy and necessity.
If you are a Christian, don't let this book pass you by! It's very readable and non-technical.

I suppose I am still in the same position, but Pipa has certainly made my foundation for that...Read more
