really liked it
bookshelves: theology
Read in November, 2001

This was the first book I ever read on the Sabbath that made me want to delight in the Sabbath. Gaffin does a great job of laying out Calvin's views on the Sabbath. I think the only downfall to his treatment of Calvin is that he tends to overspiritualize both Calvin and the Sabbath. At the same time he does a good job of explaining the eternal nature of our Sabbath rest in Christ. I recommend it highly.
