Book Description

Do Christians today see the Lord’s Day, the Christian Sabbath, as an unattractive, dreary time of legalistic restriction? If so, have they misunderstood the nature of ‘the day God made’? Glen Knecht believes that many have. They have taken what was meant to be ‘a little oasis of greenness, for meditation and rest’, to be an arid period of irksome inactivity, and have rejected a good gift of God which should have been welcomed and used with joy. Knecht sees the day as rooted in Creation and the teaching and example of Christ, as well as in the Ten Commandments. He urges a return to the right use of this ‘little section of time fenced off by God for the restoration and blessing of His people’ as a time in which to meditate, rest, serve others, and grow in understanding of God’s ways and love.
