In Modern Times, Should We Still Observe the Sabbath Day and Keep it Holy?

Xulon Press presents a model week with a planned day of rest.


Authors Lawrence A. Saunders, TM and June Tyson, PhD offer a practical guide to observing the biblical Sabbath through The Savviness to Understanding and Embracing the Sabbath: A Journey from Sunday to Saturday ($14.49, paperback, 9781645678435; $6.99, e-book, 9781545678442).


Among the diverse views of Sabbath vs. no-Sabbath, Saunders and Tyson hope to bring some clarity.  Long-term church goers themselves, they offer both spiritual and practical reasons behind a day of rest each week, and an approachable plan for incorporating it.


“This book is an excellent guide on how to honor the Sabbath in such a spiritual, yet simplistic way that anyone can apply and live by,” said Tyson.
