About-

The Sabbath-Lord's Day controversy exists because of a lack of faithful hermeneutics and attempts to validate denominational traditions with Scripture. Terrence O'Hare has studied this topic for a decade and presents his findings with the hope of attaining a consensus among professing Christians. The Sabbath Complete is thoroughly researched and comprehensive in its scope. In a readable and instructional manner O'Hare analyzes the full range of biblical texts on this topic, two millennia of church history, and literature from Jewish, Catholic, and many Protestant varieties, thus providing a comprehensive and unique answer that should appeal to a wide range of interested readers.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"While most will not be convinced by the full amount of typology, O'Hare finds in the Old Testament, the basic contours of this book are solid: even from within the perspective of Reformed, covenant theology, careful exegesis shows that the Sabbath is fulfilled in Christ. The Lord's Day (Sunday) is a separate institution, promoting worship by the believing community, not the Christian Sabbath. Nowhere is the Christian commanded to rest one day in seven. This is an important contribution to an age-old debate."_
-Craig L. Blomberg
author of The Historical Reliability of the Gospels

"Due to my Sabbatarian roots, I was eager to see O'Hare's thorough analysis of the Sabbath. Readers will be richly rewarded by his attention to details of the biblical text, and his survey of key points in the history of Sabbatarianism. O'Hare carefully and calmly points out logical inconsistencies that some people bring to this question. I was especially pleased to see his chapter on Israel's other festival days with details about the Hebrew calendar. His analysis will be very helpful for anyone studying either the seventh-day Sabbath or Sunday Sabbatarianism."
