Guy Prentiss Waters




Part of the Biblical Theology series.

When it comes to the Sabbath, Christians have different ideas on what it means and how to observe it. For many people, it is a day to go to church and have fellowship with other believers. What they often miss, though, is that the Sabbath is intricately tied to rest and worship—both of which ultimately point to the Lord as our creator and redeemer.

In this addition to the Short Studies in Biblical Theology series, Guy Prentiss Waters offers an introductory study of the Sabbath from the creation of the world to the consummation of all things when Jesus returns. He shows how the Sabbath is observed through the major themes and genres of the Bible—creation, law, prophets, Jesus, and the apostles—and how that applies to our lives today. Waters teaches us about the Sabbath’s full restoration in the new heavens and the new earth and its continual reminder of the covenant that God has made with his people.

Written for New Believers and Seasoned Saints Alike: Perfect for laypersons, pastors, college and seminary students, and academics
Practical: Examines how the Sabbath is relevant to the church now as well as how it will be restored in the new heavens and the new earth
Short Studies in Biblical Theology: Part of a series designed to give readers accessible volumes on God’s word
