Friday Freebie

Last week’s Friday Freebie was so well-received that we’ve decided to do it again (and we might even make this a regular feature).

Today’s special freebie is…

The Sabbath or the Lord’s Day, Which?
By D.R. Dungan.

David Roberts Dungan was a preacher/teacher/writer in the late 1800s/early 1900s.  His book on Hermeneutics is still the standard on Biblical Interpretation in most preaching schools and Christian colleges.  His novel On the Rock was reprinted several times and was that generation’s Muscle and a Shovel.

Today’s free book was written to answer the question about whether the church is commanded to meet on the Sabbath or the first day of the week.  Dungan approaches the topic with a level head and an open Bible, and deals with every claim that the Sabbath-keepers produced.  When you finish this book, you will have no doubt as to the answer to the question: The Sabbath or the Lord’s Day?

Just like all of our other books, this one has undergone updating in spelling, correction of typos, and a complete reformatting to make it much easier on the eyes.  We hope you will find it useful.

  1. I firmly believe in and keep GOD’s 7th day sabbath. Have you ever noticed that is the only Commandment that people mess with???

    If the Commandments were done away, each of the others were also done away! I don’t think so! Since Jesus’ sacrifice they now affect one’s heart & intent!

    Our human IMPERFECTION at KEEPING the Commandment is what is covered & paid for, but does NOT give us license TO disobey!

    Otherwise I was interested in your offer.

    Sincerely,
    Ginny Brown
