The Fourth Commandment


Only a few decades ago, a high view of the Lord’s Day was standard among English-speaking evangelicals. Yet today, there are many Christians for whom the whole notion of one day set aside for God seems a quaint throw-back to Victorian values. It is easy to feel intimidated by the tide of this popular thinking within the evangelical world.

In this timely and thoughtful booklet, Rupert Bentley-Taylor shows from the Bible the roots of the Sabbath in creation, as a blessing for the whole human race. Taking in the teaching of Old and New Testaments, he emphasises its ongoing importance for us today. He concludes: “I fear that when we turn away from honouring the fourth commandment, we pay a high price individually and corporately.”
