For those who want a more in-depth defense and explanation of the position on the Sabbath espoused by Tom Schreiner, the best resource I know of is From Sabbath to Lord’s Day: A Biblical, Historical and Theological Investigation, edited by Don Carson. Carson has pointed out before that his own personal practice differs very little from Sabbatarians, but that this issue is one of the most interesting biblical-theological test-cases for how one understands issues of continuity and discontinuity between the covenant with Israel and the New Covenant.

Here is the table of contents:
