Daniel Liechty places Sabbatarianism within the perspective of the restitution theme of the Radical Reformation in this study of Andreas Fischer, the main leader in a small Sabbatarian faction among the 16th-century Anabaptists.
"The contribution of Liechty to the growing Anabaptist research extends beyond a mere biographical reconstruction of Fischer's life. It breaks significant new ground by carefully reconstructing the Sabbatarian theology of one wing of the Anabaptist movement which has been largely ignored. In doing so, Liechty raises important questions regarding the theological stance of other Anabaptist streams, particularly in terms of the concern of the movement to rediscover and restore biblical teachings and practices." —Samuele Bacchiocchi, Andrews University, from the Foreword
