"An impeccable work of historical scholarship which treats a subject long deserving of the intelligent attention it receives from Bryan W. Ball. ... The book contains a wealth of detail."
Winton W. Solberg, in Church History
"This definitive work provides us with the first coherent, well-documented examination of the Saturday Sabbatarians, their antecedents, origins, teachings, development and decline."
Raymond Brown, in Journal of Ecclesiastical History
"The original text has been left unchanged – thank goodness – and the additional material easily identifiable as gathered in a second introduction, in twenty pages of extra notes and in an additional bibliography. From the Unitarian General Baptist point of view it is worth noting some additional information regarding the origins of the elusive and fascinating Mill Yard Seventh Day Baptist congregation."
Andrew Hill, in Transactions of the Unitarian Historical Society, Vol 25
"In writing a second edition Ball's goal of reaffirming Saturday Sabbatarianism within the 'rich kaleidoscope' of seventeenth- and eighteenth- century English religious history, and rescuing it from the inaccuracies of the past and the recent present, has undoubtedly been achieved."
Irena Larking, in Journal for the Academic Study of Religion, Vol 24, No 3
