Elegant, passionate, and filled with the love of God's creation, Abraham Joshua Heschel's The Sabbath has been hailed as a classic of Jewish spirituality ever since its original publication--and has been read by thousands of people seeking meaning in modern life. In this brief yet profound meditation on the meaning of the Seventh Day, Heschel, one of the most widely respected religious leaders of the twentieth century, introduced the influential idea of an 'architecture of holiness" that appears not in space but in time. Judaism, he argues, is a religion of time: it finds meaning not in space and the materials things that fill it but in time and the eternity that imbues it, so that 'the Sabbaths are our greatcatherdrals.'
Each and every Friday, as the sun sets, Jews all over the world light candles and welcome the Sabbath. But what is the true holiness of Shabbos? How can we comprehend the meaning behind it, and how can we understand its complex laws and observances? In this concise volume, the author delves into the depths of Shabbos, opening our eyes to the meaning behind the holy day. Beginning with a basic explanation of the concept of 'work' according to the Torah, the author skilfully outlines the Shabbos laws, presenting a concrete, sound, and inspiring guide to the practical observance of Shabbos. This is a completely revised and expanded edition of a classic work which will fill a great need among English-speaking Jewry. Read it, and may your Shabbos experience be transformed.
Four views of the Sabbath commandment (Seventh-day, Fulfillment, Christian Sabbath, and Lutheran) are presented by scholars in point-counterpoint style to determine which is most faithful to Scripture.
Many are the contentions and suspicions surrounding the Sabbath and its corollaries. Inadequate answers and the lack of answers only fuel these contentions and suspicions. There is an urgent need for a thoughtful and critical response to the Sabbath and the crisis which has characterized it. This response must demonstrate no respect for any particular denomination, but can stand the test of biblical integrity. The author attempts to pellucidly address the Sabbath and all the factors upon which it is contingent, putting to rest the anxieties and empowering those who genuinely desire answers to this age old issue, regardless of their denominational affiliation. The scope and depth with which the author examines the Sabbath provides indispensable information regarding Israel and the Church, and their relationship to each other. The Sabbath injunction forms part of the Ten Commandments, which were given within the context of a specific covenant. The goal of this investigation is to determine the covenant in which the Sabbath injunction is found and whether or not it is binding for Christians. It is the author's prayer that as you examine the Sabbath and the various factors akin to it, that God will give you the spirit of revelation, wisdom, and understanding.
