Tremendous and thorough read. Carson is one of the best commentators there is; he brilliantly relays difficult concepts in a concise and cogent manner.
The team that he assembled to tackle this difficult concept was well-organized and objective. They fairly analyzed all of the relevant views, and confronted differing opinions squarely, but graciously.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone that is interested how Christians ought to approach the Sabbath Day, the Decalogue, and the Lord's Day.

Much of this book, with chapters written by various international evangelical scholars, reads like a doctoral dissertation. The book assumes fluency in theology and the biblical languages. Contributors include Max Turner and A. T. Lincoln as well as Canadian/American D.

I decided recently to order a number of books on that list that had bubbled up to the top, and this was the first to be read. Great contents. There are more pertin ...more
