The Day God Made by Glen Knecht
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This short book by an esteemed, elder-statesman pastor in my presbytery is well worth your time reading on a Sunday afternoon.
I read it in preparation for a sermon on the fourth (Sabbath) commandment.
Pastor Knecht assumes more than argues for the Westminsterian view of the Sabbath (it is moved to Sunday and the whole day should be taken up in worship, reflection, and works of mercy or maintenance). Insights and practical applications abound, like this:
"By having to separate out in our lives what is appropriate for Sabbath activity, we will recognize what a stronghold the pleasures and ways of the world have taken upon our minds and imaginations."
