Overview

THE SABBATH UNDER CROSSFIRE examines the recent attacks against the Sabbath within the larger historical context of the origin and development of the anti-Sabbath theology. An understanding of how the abrogation view of the Sabbath began and developed through the centuries, is essential for comprehending why the Sabbath is still under crossfire today.
The book analyzes in a systematic way the most common arguments used to negate the continuity and validity of the Sabbath for today. With compelling Biblical reasoning, it unmasks the fallacies of the attempts made to reduce the Sabbath to a Mosaic institution, fulfilled by Christ and condemned by Paul.

The final chapter, Rediscovering the Sabbath, offers an informative update on the rediscovery of the Sabbath by numerous religious groups, scholars, and church leaders. Most important of all, this book will enrich your understanding of how the Sabbath can enable you to experience the Saviors presence, peace, and rest in your life.

The first chapter on "John Paul II and the Sabbath" was featured on the Religion section of WASHINGTON POST on January 23, 1999 under the title "When is the Lord's Day? Adventist Says Pope Unfairly Promotes Sunday Sabbath."

This work is dedicated to Sabbath keepers and is most helpful to them. It ably analyzes and refutes arguments of the Catholic/Protestant tradition -- which long ago displaced the Sabbath with Sunday -- and especially the arguments of the Worldwide Church of God's recent repudiation of Sabbath-keeping. Much of the book is a brilliant Scriptural analysis setting forth the Sabbath-related teachings of Christ and His apostles, especially Paul, showing them clearly to be Sabbath-keepers. He especially addresses 'hard to understand' passages of Paul that are commonly interpeted to make it seem that Paul denigrated the Sabbath. I found this book very edifying!
