This is a reprinting of Dennison's book on the Sabbath as understood by the Puritans. Dennison originally wrote this book as a thesis at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary for the late Dr. John H. Gerstner, and it was published in 1983. We have retypeset it from its original edition. In this book, painstakingly researched from original sources, Dennison shows the differing views on the Sabbath between the Anglicans of the 16th and 17th centuries and the Puritans of that same time period. He concludes that the Puritan view of the Sabbath is the biblical one.

From the Inside Flap:

"In The Market Day of the Soul, James T. Dennison examines the question of the supreme Christian holy day, the Sabbath. He shows how the Sabbath emerged from the imprecision of the sixteenth century to become a celebrated cause in pre-Revolutionary England. Finally, he demonstrates the triumph of the Puritan Sabbath during the Revolution, a triumph that continued to make the English Sabbath distinctive into the nineteenth century. In the course of this investigation, Dennison shows that the Puritan view of the Lord's Day became the dominate view - both theologically and practically - by the latter half of the seventeenth century, in spite of challenges it faced from the ""medieval"" position of the Court party and the Seventh-day Sabbatarians.

May God use this book to turn many from the soul-damaging result of neglecting to keep the Sabbath day to the conscientious keeping of Sabbath as a delight owed to God (Isa. 58:13-14). --Joel R.
