The Market Day of the Soul

James Dennison

The Market Day of the Soul

James Dennison

$28.99

Paperback
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.

- Publisher 1. The Formative Years: The Sabbath And The Desire For A Pure Reformation, 1532-1603^2. The Restless Years: The Sabbath In The Era Of The Book Of Sports, 1603-1633^3. Years Of No Rest: The Sabbath Pamphlet Wars, Laud And The Revolution, 1633-1650^4. Years Of Relative Rest: The Sabbath As An English Custom, 1650-1700^5. Conclusion^209 Pages

- Publisher In our day, observing the Sabbath is at least neglected, if not ignored and forgotten altogether. It was not always so, and certainly not for the 17th century English Puritans. The Sabbath, or the Lord's Day, was highly regarded by the culture as well as the church. While there was not universal agreement on what Sabbath observance meant, there was little disagreement that the divinely-appointed day of rest was to be given its due.^Having thoroughly and painstakingly consulted original sources, James T. Dennison, Jr. concludes that the Puritan view of the Sabbath was the biblical view. He shows us what proper Sabbath observance meant to them (and should mean to us), and calls us to "remember the Sabbath, to keep it holy."^
