JAMES T DENNISON JNR

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.

James T. Dennison, Jr. is Academic Dean of Northwest Theological Seminary in Washington, where he also serves as Professor of Church History and Biblical Theology. He is the editor of Kerux: The Journal of Northwest Theological Seminary, and has also edited various books including Francis Turretin’s Institutes of Elenctic Theology, Geerhardus Vos’s Old Testament Eschatology, and The Letters of Geerhardus Vos.

“Dennison’s detailed, historical study of the Sabbath-particularly the Puritan Sabbath-provides numerous insights that will help Christians today to maintain God-honoring Sabbath-keeping as the market day of the soul. 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. Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
