Reviews
"Surprised me, held my attention, taught me things I didn't know and made me think. . . . The story is fascinating. . . . We touch down at intriguing moments in history and walk around to feel what Sunday was like. . . . I found myself entirely caught up in each period. The gritty realism of the account is compelling."--James Howell, Christian Century--James Howell "Christian Century"
"Social history, which can be in the wrong hands a dreary recitation of statistics comes alive in Sunday because the author gives it flesh and blood that makes one feel it is happening to real people...Full of delightful tidbits."--David Crawley, Anglican Journal--David Crawley "Anglican Jounral"
