I love books on Lord's Day. There are not enough of them published from the Reformation and the Puritans. I'm working on a few.
Cleaver, in this work, is a penetrating drill. Interestingly enough, even even quotes Calvin to bolster the Lord's Day position.

A Declaration of the Christian Sabbath – by Robert Cleaver (d. 1613)

Robert Cleaver (d. 1613) was a puritan divine who worked closely with John Dod, was an able scholar who wrote many works, and was a well known Reformed Preacher in his day.


Among works on the Sabbath and Lord’s Day, Robert Cleaver’s work stands among the best. This work was one of his most well-known. One of his main texts is James 2:10-11, “Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet fail in one point, he is guilty of all; for he, that said, you shall not commit adultery, said also, you shall not kill,” and, “This shall be our righteousness before the Lord our God, if we take heed to keep all these commandments, as he has commanded us,” (Deut. 6:25). Cleaver teaches the Christian church that it is dangerous to question the authorities of God’s Laws. He shows that the moral commandments are perpetual, that the Fourth Commandment is moral, and that there is still dignity of the Law in regard to continuance. He shows how the Sabbath is still the Lord’s Day.


Cleaver covers how the Law has a place in man’s heart by nature, how the Law belongs to the regenerate, and that there are no alterations or changes of nature in the duties of the Law. He answers many questions and objections of those, in his day, that attempted to overthrow the moral law and the Lord’s Day, as well as demonstrating how Christians in the Primitive Church believed that the Lord’s Day is by divine institution as a result of the moral Law.
