What Does It Mean to Enter God's Rest?

Posted by
This month the Alliance is pleased to offer its latest book, Entering God's Rest: The Sabbath from Genesis to Revelation (And What It Means for You) by Ken Golden.

God provides rest for His people, yet the way we rest on Sunday remains a divisive issue in the Church. How can we honor the biblical commandment while upholding liberty of conscience? To answer that question, Pastor Ken Golden turns to the Bible itself.

Ken writes, "The world offers many definitions of rest, but Christians should consider God's definition of rest...God gives us physical rest (Prov. 3:24) and refreshment (Mk. 6:31). Yet the Bible goes much deeper than our shallow definitions...Is Sabbath observance a 'one size fits all' practice, or is it informed by specific circumstances?"

We encourage you to order Entering God's Rest this month for a special introductory price. Available at ReformedResources.org.

"Pastor Golden is one of those who takes the Lord's Day seriously, who has thought about it deeply, and who desires to observe it, in honor of Christ and for the welfare of the church... His study is exegetically careful, theologically balanced, and spiritually edifying."
