The freedom and responsibility of choice is one of the basic tenets of Baptist beliefs. Seventh Day Baptists as a part of this Baptist heritage for over 350 years have upheld and practiced that right. The decision to follow the Bible instead of ecclesiastical authority and tradition led them to accept the seventh day of the week as the Sabbath which sets them apart from other Baptists. A Choosing People: The History of Seventh Day Baptists documents the history of this oldest Sabbathkeeping Christian denomination within the framework of both religious and secular history from the Reformation in Europe to modern times in America. Originally published in 1992, this book has been thoroughly updated to the present and brings greater accuracy and thoroughness to this engaging history of the choices, struggles, and beliefs of Seventh Day Baptists.
