You should order his book on the sabbath from his website. It is very well written and the Catholic church awarded it as one of the best books on the subject ever written.

Expert on Bible, Sabbath dies at 70
Samuele Bacchiocchi best known for explaining shift toward Sunday worship

Dr. Samuele Bacchiocchi

Biblical scholar Dr. Samuele Bacchiocchi, best known for his teachings on how Sabbath observance shifted toward Sunday worship in much of Christendom, died yesterday at his Michigan home at the age of 70 after a two-year battle with fourth-stage liver cancer.

The retired theology professor from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Mich., passed away shortly after midnight Saturday, surrounded by his three children and wife, who would have marked their 47th wedding anniversary today.

"We are very grateful that we could all be together at this time and believe that it is fitting that God chose the Sabbath day, the day that he loved most and spent his life preaching and writing about, to be the day that he entered into his final earthly rest," his family said. "We take comfort in the fact that the next time he will open his eyes he will see his Lord and Savior, and  that we will be reunited with him in heaven. His incredible journey here on earth has come to an end, but may we continue his legacy until Jesus returns!"  MORE


Everyone from the Plain Truth send our condolences. This man truly opened up the Sabbath to everyone and it is fitting that he died on that day. A sign from heaven indeed! RIP.

Further Update on Dr. Bacchiocchi
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I would like to provide you, on behalf of the Bacchiocchi family, with a further update on the status of my father.  After a full week in the intensive care unit at Goshen General Hospital, in Goshen, Indiana, my father will be coming home today.  This is truly an answer to prayer.  The doctors were able to stop the internal bleeding last Friday, but my father has been incredibly week and his liver has been struggling to do its job.  Each day though, by the grace of God, my father has been able to gain strength and lucidity, but he is still not fully lucid or able to take care of himself.  There is nothing more that the doctors can do to heal his liver.  However, we place my father in the care of the Master Physician and continue to pray, and ask you to keep praying, that He will perform a miracle and heal my father.   We know that with God, nothing is impossible.
 
This past week has been a real journey for my father and the whole family. In spite of the challenges that we have faced and continue to face, we have been very comforted by the outpouring of love and prayers from all over the world for my father and the rest of my family.  I apologize if we have not been able to respond to everyone that has written to my sister and me, but rest assured that we have read all of your messages and have received a tremendous amount of encouragement and peace from them.  If any of you would like to send a message to my father, we still recommend that you send it either to my sister, Loretta Bacchiocchi, at loretta_bacchiocchi@fhchs.edu or me at bacchiocchi@gmail.com.

 
Thank you again for all of your prayers and the many kind words of support.  Words cannot express how much they mean to us.

God Bless,

Gianluca Bacchiocchi


Editors note: Dr. Bacchiocchi a renowned scholar is the author of the most definitive book ever written on the Sunday/Sabbath question.
