Item Description...
Overview
Colonial Presbyterianism is a collection of essays that tell the story of the Presbyterian Church during its formative years in America. The book brings together research from a broad group of scholars into an accessible format for laymen, clergy, and scholars. Through a survey of important personalities and events, the contributors offer a compelling narrative that will be of interest to Presbyterians and all persons interested in colonial America's religious experience. The clergy described in these essays made a lasting impact on their generation both within the church and in the emerging ethos of a new nation. The ecclesiastical issues that surfaced during this period have tended to be the perennial issues with which Presbyterians have been concerned ever since that time. Now at the three-hundredth anniversary of Presbyterian organization in America, Colonial Presbyterianism is a timely reengagement with the old faith for a new day.

Description: Colonial Presbyterianism is a collection of essays that tell the story of the Presbyterian Church during its formative years in America. The book brings together research from a broad group of scholars into an accessible format for laymen, clergy, and scholars. Through a survey of important personalities and events, the contributors offer a compelling narrative that will be of interest to Presbyterians and all persons interested in colonial America's religious experience. The clergy described in these essays made a lasting impact on their generation both within the church and in the emerging ethos of a new nation. The ecclesiastical issues that surfaced during this period have tended to be the perennial issues with which Presbyterians have been concerned ever since that time. Now at the three-hundredth anniversary of Presbyterian organization in America, Colonial Presbyterianism is a timely reengagement with the old faith for a new day. Endorsements: ""Since Leonard Trinterud published his fine book on colonial Presebyterianism more than fifty years ago, there has been no other comprehensive study of this formative period in American Presbyterian history. This new book edited by Donald Fortson offers an excellent collection of essays that goes a long way toward updating the subject and showing its ongoing contemporary importance for church structure and Christian life. The book's authors are learned, yet chapters are clear and accessible. The book deserves a wide readership."" --Mark A. Noll Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History University of Notre Dame ""This commemorative volume of the three-hundredth anniversary of the first Presbytery in America is a fitting tribute to the vitality and diversity of Presbyterianism over three centuries. The contributors are all experts who bring their knowledge to bear on the figures and events that shaped a dominant spiritual force through the early colonies. This unique book will be valued by those who recognize the theological, ecclesiastical, and cultural significance of Presbyterianism. They will frequently consult it, delighting in it as a rich resource for describing themes that emerged in colonial times and which, in varied ways, are of ongoing significance today."" --Donald K. McKim, editor of the Encyclopedia of Reformed Faith About the Contributor(s): S. Donald Fortson III is Associate Professor of Church History and Practical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina.
