New Book on Four "Perspectives" on Observing a Sabbath

Perspectives on the Sabbath: Four ViewsIf you have ever wrestled with the question of whether or not Christians are expected to keep a "Sabbath" of some kind today, then Christopher Donato's new book, Perspectives on the Sabbath: Four Views will be interesting to you. It has excellent summaries of the three major views, plus a Lutheran perspective that is not as distinct. 

If you are interested in the question, but don't think you'd read the book,  you can read a very helpful summary and review of the book by following this link to The Gospel Coalition review website: Perspectives on the Sabbath - TGC Reviews

And if you just aren't interested in the question, that's too bad, because that means you are just "doing what you do" without thinking, "is this what God's Word says I should do?"  Don't just trust what you see around you, LOOK TO THE BOOK.  No, not the "perspectives" book, but the Bible.  This book would help you in your search.  And I support one of these views strongly, but will leave it to you to figure out which one!
