BOOK REVIEW: ALL FOODS ARE CLEAN AND EVERY DAY IS THE SABBATH

Elce-Junior “Thunder” Lauriston, whose testimony appeared in our Summer, 2016, issue of Proclamation! has recently written a book. Larry Dean, J.D., an avid sabbatarian researcher, says the following:

A searing examination of Romans 14, from the perspective of an ex-Adventist seminary student. A resounding affirmation of the principle of Christian freedom from both the Law and works. Based on this argument alone, the Adventist Sabbatarian and Mosaic dietary restrictions arguments are divisive and destructive intrusions into the Body of Christ, issues that are at best secondary. There are no more excuses for mandatory Sabbatarianism nor dietary restrictions. Now they know.

Clinton Baldwin, Ph.D., Associate Professor: New Testament Textual Studies, Baldwin’s Biblical Manuscript Research Institute gives this review:

Elce-Junior “Thunder” Lauriston has produced a well-reasoned, adequately researched, and very insightful book. Modern Sabbatarians and Seventh-day Adventists in particular, are again challenged on defending the obligatory nature of the weekly Sabbath and the Levitical dietary distinctions. Certainly, Lauriston has revealed many vulnerable points in the Adventist traditional arguments pro-mandatory Sabbath-keeping and abstinence from certain foods. Adventists and other Sabbatarians will do themselves well to consider his strong arguments presented in this volume.
