Sabbath in the New Testament, The / Bacchiocchi, Samuele / (PB/1985-1985/B+/USED)



*Condition Note: Book is gently used and clean.*


Does the New Testament teach the termination of the principle and practice of Sabbath keeping with the coming of Christ? To test the validity of this widely held view, Dr. Samuele Bacchiocchi has devoted many years of painstaking research, which has been published by the Pontifical Gregorian University press.
In the Sabbath in the New Testament Dr. Bacchiocchi summarizes his extensive research by presenting four basic reasons for his belief in the permanence of the principle and practice of Sabbath keeping in the New Testament. These reasons are presented in a clear and simple way which ordinary readers can easily understand.
In the second half of the book Dr. Bacchiocchi answers a wide variety of questions people have often asked him in conjunction with his popular Lord's Day Seminar. The questions deal with historical, theological and practical aspects of Sabbathkeeping. This section entitled "Answers to Questions" makes the book a most valuable reference manual when dealing with frequently asked questions about the Sabbath.
