In the last fifteen years, there has been renewed interest in the nature and purpose of the fourth commandment and what many refer to as the Puritan Sabbath. By God s grace a conversation has begun that is helping many come to a fuller appreciation for and use of the Lord s Day. Pastor Ryan McGraw s voice in the conversation needs to be heard. As he says, I have sought to address what I believe to be the primary underlying issues behind the widespread neglect of the Sabbath day. Pastor McGraw s book is chock-full of biblical insights, freshly applied to the issue of the Christian Sabbath. I have been helped by the book and know that each one who reads it will be as well. --Joseph A. Pipa Jr., President, Greenville Presbyterian Theological SeminaryFar too many Christians only believe in nine commandments. The command to keep a day of rest on which to worship our triune covenant Lord is deemed as irrelevant or no longer binding. Providing helpful exegesis and theological consideration, Ryan McGraw gives the church important reasons to recover the abiding validity and necessity of the fourth commandment. Far from being legalistic, McGraw s treatment encourages all Christians to find worship, rest, and a foretaste of heaven to come on each and every Lord s Day. --J. V. Fesko, Academic Dean and Associate Professor of Systematic Theology Westminster Seminary California
