'The Seventh-day Men' was a title given by contemporaries in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to an emerging body of Christians who observed Saturday, rather than Sunday, as the divinely appointed day of rest and worship.

This is the first fully documented history of the Sabbatarian movement in England and Wales in the two centuries following the Reformation. Drawing on many rare manuscripts and printed works, Dr Ball provides clear evidence that the movement was far more extensive than is often recognised, appearing in more than thirty countries.

The author suggests that the origins of the movement can be traced as far back as the Celtic tradition, and shows that the first 'modern' Sabbatarian appeared as early as 1402. He also explores the reasons why the movement declined in the eighteenth century.

As the first comprehensive study of the subject, this book establishes the Sabbatarian movement as a significant strand of thought in the history of English Nonconformity, with considerable influence on the religious life of the period.

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
