The Dugger-Porter Debate
features a no holds barred ca. 1930s classic debate between Andrew N.
Dugger, Church of God (Seventh Day) leader, and Curtis Porter, a Church
of Christ minister, regarding the Bible evidence for Sabbath versus
Sunday. 128 pp., photocopy.
While some former Sabbath-keepers contend that
Sabbath-keeping assemblies of today have a short lineage, we promote
several scholarly, yet very readable, books which demonstrate the
extensive history of Sabbath keepers throughout the world for two
History of the Sabbath by James
N. Andrews, 1887 edition, is one of the most important books ever
written on the Sabbath. Every Sabbath-keeper should have a copy of this
extensive 548-page reference book. Andrews traces the Biblical and
secular history of the seventh day Sabbath, and the origin of first-day
observance. (Book is hard to get, not always in print.)
The Israel of the Alps is a
stirring 3-part, 85 minute video, documenting the history of the
Waldenses, who for over a thousand years, through intense sufferings,
clung to the Word of God. Many early Waldenses were Sabbath-keepers.
This beautiful video was filmed on location in the scenic Alps.
History of the Waldenses, 206
pages, by J.A. Wylie, describes in detail the conflicts and martyrdoms
of "valley dwellers" who maintained their Bible faith for hundreds of
The Celtic Church in
Britain, by Leslie Hardinge, is a well-documented
265-page book, which shows that Christians in the British Isles almost
exclusively kept the seventh day Sabbath for six hundred years after
the Messiah. They kept the Sabbath from sundown to sundown, were known
to be Quartodecimans (kept annual Passover on fourteenth day of the
Hebrew month), eschewed unclean meats, and were not trinitarians. St.
Patrick of Ireland was not a Catholic, but a Sabbath-keeper who
stressed keeping the Lew of God. This book is a real eye opener.
Truth Triumphant. The
Church in the Wilderness, by B.G. Wilkinson, 424 pages,
shows the spread of the Sabbath-keeping New Testament Church around the
world, concentrating on the 1260 year period from A.D. 538-1798. From
the Sabbath-keeping heroes Lucian, Vigilantius, Patrick, Columba,
Papas, Dinooth, Aidan, Columbanus, Peter de Bruys, Timothy of Bagdad,
and many more, you will be confronted with documented evidence of a
long history of Sabbath observance in many countries such as Ireland,
Scotland, Wales, England, the Waldensian Alps, Spain, Syria, Persia,
India, China, Japan, and the Philippines. This excellent book is a
monument, an inspiration for all Sabbath-keepers.
Facts of Faith, 320-pages, by
Christian Edwardson is an extensive list of quotations from original
sources covering aspects of Sabbath-keeping history not generally
History of the Jesuits is a
2-hour video by Seventh-day Adventist James Arrabito. When you study
the Jesuits, you will see why they are termed, "enemies of the
A Woman Rides the Beast: The Roman Catholic
Church and the Last Days, by Dave Hunt, 552 pages, and
the accompanying 58-minute video, describes Catholic activities of
recent times and the last days.
Rome's Challenge: Why Do
Protestants Keep Sunday? would make an excellent gift to
a Protestant who may be interested in the Sabbath. This 30-page
pamphlet reproduces a series of articles published in the September
2-23, 1893, Catholic Mirror, official organ of Cardinal
Gibbons, which challenged Protestants why they keep Sunday,
when the Bible commands Sabbath (Saturday) observance. Protestants are
not consistent when they claim their faith is grounded in "the Bible
only," yet by keeping Sunday, they are recognizing the tradition and
authority of the Roman Catholic Church.
The Change of the Sabbath, by
George I. Butler, over 196 pages, is a reprint of the 1904 original
From Sabbath to Sunday, by Dr.
Samuele Bacchiocchi, traces the origin of Sunday-keeping to the Church
of Rome, as the result of an interplay of political, anti-Jewish,
social, and pagan influences. This 372-page book is a classic!
Divine Rest for Human
Restlessnes is, in our opinion, the best book written by
Dr. Bacchiocchi. It is a 319-page theological study of the Good News of
the Sabbath for today. Enjoy the Sabbath with this book.
In The Sabbath in the New
Testament, 296 pages, Dr. Bacchiocchi explores in depth
the New Testament evidence (including Paul) in favor of
Sabbath-keeping, answers many questions, and gives Italian Sabbath
The Sabbath: its Meaning for Modern
Man, by the Jewish scholar, Abraham Joshua Heschel, 118
pages, is perhaps the premier work on the philosophy of the Sabbath.
Not a book to speed read, each sentence is weighty, and worthy of
prayerful meditation. Although written from a Jewish perspective,
Sabbath-keeping Christians can well relate to Heschel's brilliant
exploration of the spiritual meaning of the Sabbath. Most of the
religions of the world have "holy places," and "sacred temples." The
religion of the Bible, however, sanctifies holy time. In the
Bible, no thing, no place on earth, is holy by itself. The Creator
places His divine presence, not in a physical place, but in a place in
time, where He communes with His people on His Holy Sabbath, a "palace
Spiritual Sabbathism, by
Seventh Day Baptist scholar Abram H. Lewis, 88-page reprint of 1910
classic, is a study in the philosophy of the Sabbath. It is the
crowning book of the most prolific writer on the Sabbath of the
nineteenth century. Includes photo and biography of A.H. Lewis.
A customized, computer-generated Sunset
Table, for any location on the earth gives sunsets and
sunrises for every day of the year. Table uses "military time," i.e.

accurate for any year.
