Description

Americans and Europeans more and more follow a five- or four-day workweek. The fact that modern man does not have to spend six full days earning his livelihood raises many social and theological problems. What is the significance of the Sabbath for him. Can he juggle his worship time according to his free-time program? is a twenty-four-hour Sabbath rest now anachronistic since man today spends at most only a few hours in worship? Dr, Samuele Bacchiocchi answers these and many other questions by investigating and defining the Biblical meaning of the Sabbath rest. He shows what it does for man and how it involves man's relationship with God. Bacchiocchi reveals ow the Bible views the Sabbath as a symbol of deliverance, consecration, communion, and peace - needs shared by all men everywhere.
