Book Description

Walter Chantry is an author who has consistently put his finger on the particular weaknesses and failures of the contemporary church. In his books we hear echoes of the prophetic insights and warnings which run through Scripture. Call the Sabbath a Delight is no exception. Its title indicates the burden of its message. A startling transformation has taken place in the way Christians approach the Lord’s Day. While Walter Chantry does not flinch from stressing that the effects of this have been disastrous-morally and socially, as well as spiritually-his burden is not morally negative. His concern is to show why and how the Lord’s Day is meant to be one of joy and blessing for God’s people. He succeeds in a remarkable way. Call the Sabbath a Delight is written with a deep pastoral concern. It is a very important book for all Christians to read.

    I enjoyed reading this small book. For one, Chapter 7, “Which Day of the Week is the Sabbath?”, is particularly worth reading (and re-reading if necessary), where the author provided thought-provoking answers to three often perplexing questions: 1. For what reason has the Sabbath Day been changed from the seventh to the first day of the week? 2. Is such a change fully consistent with the continuing validity of the moral law? 3. Does this change of day undermine the fourth commandment? There the Biblical analysis of Hebrew 3-4 is wonderful. Why does that matter? Well, believers, how often do we realize or remember the (spiritual) blessings of the Lord! So much, so rich! In reflection, that’s a great encouragement I got from the reading. Wish others can also benefit from this book.
