Abstract

This chapter evaluates Seventh-day Adventist theologian Bryan Ball’s contribution to studies of Puritanism in Elizabethan and Stuart England. Ball locates the origins of many distinctive Seventh-day Adventist beliefs in various thinkers during the period, on a continuum from the main stream to the marginal. His work is innovative among SDA scholars in plumbing the origins of SDA thought long before the movement actually began.
