Perspectives on the Sabbath presents in point counterpoint form the four most common views of the Sabbath commandment that have arisen throughout church history representing the major positions held among Christians today Skip MacCarty Andrews University defends the Seventh day view which argues the fourth commandment is a moral law of God reuiring us to keep the se It's always difficult to review a multi perspective book since the chapters are usually of uneven uality And so it is here But surprisingly it's not always the views that you expect turn out to be the best chapters Unexpectedly I found that the seventh day Adventist chapter to be one of the stronger chapters in the book perhaps because it was strongly exegetical and focussed on explaining what the Bible said However when it came to explaining the New Testament passages that relativized the Sabbath the approach was basically Well this can't be referring to the seventh day Sabbath On the other hand Blomberg's chapter which was also very exegetical tended to be weak on the Old Testament passages Some Old Testament passages speak about a future time when God's people will keep the Sabbath Blomberg's approach is basically We don't really know perhaps God will get people to keep the Sabbath in a coming millennial kingdom Again it's a weak answer The other two chapters reformed and Lutheran tend to write from a confessionalhistorical theology mode and didn't do much to convince me Ultimately I felt it was a book in which no perspective offered convincing answers But as a helpful introduction to four major views it was a useful read

Perspectives on the SabbathVenth day Saturday holy It must therefore remain the day of rest and worship for ChristiansJospeh A Pipa Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary backs the Christian Sabbath view which reasons that ever since the resurrection of Christ the one day in seven to be kept holy is the first day of the weekCraig L Blomberg Denver Seminary supports the Fulfillment view This was a pretty good book detailing several different approaches to the Sabbath and argues for and against each side presented the Seventh Day Adventist view the Christian Sabbath view the Lutheran view and the Fulfillment view The book is pretty thick for a multiple perspective book but while it could have been pared down some it also gives a very comprehensive look at the major positions In my opinion the largest and most important debate in this book was very much between the Christian Sabbath and the Fulfillment views and the conversation tended to get the tensest between the two authors arguing for these positions That being said both the Lutheran and the Seventh Day Adventist had valuable insights to offer and while neither of them were as particularly convincing as the other two they both made strong arguments for their sides and I learned a lot about their positions In the end most of the differences lie fundamentally with what hermeneutic is to be used for understanding the relationship of the OT to the NT I was most convinced by Pipa's argument for the Christian Sabbath view especially in how it focused on Hebrews 49 but I was also coming from that perspective Great book that really forces you to consider all the arguments and dig deeper into the issues surrounding the observing of the SabbathRating 4 45 Stars Excellent
