Presbyterian and Reformed Churches Presbyterian and Reformed Churches

A Global History

by McGoldrick, James E.

In 1905, Westminster Press published History of the Presbyterian Churches of the World by church historian Richard Clark Reed (1851Ė1925). Reedís book, intended as a textbook for college and seminary students, covered the history of churches that subscribed to Presbyterian polity from the New Testament era to the beginning of the twentieth century. Based on Reedís original work as well as an unpublished manuscript by Presbyterian historian Thomas Hugh Spence Jr. (1899Ė1986), Presbyterian and Reformed Churches: A Global History picks up the story of Presbyterian and Reformed churches where the earlier works left off. In this volume, the author revises and updates Reedís and Spenceís original, historically relevant works, continuing the survey to the twenty-first century. Each chapter traces the history of Presbyterian and Reformed churches in individual nations and regions around the globe. The author covers the major events, leaders, and institutions influencing Presbyterian and Reformed church history in a readable style that is ideally suited for classroom study as well as for independent reading. A list of suggested additional readings concludes each chapter.

Hardcover, 566 pages, with jacket. General Index. A list of suggested additional readings concludes each chapter.
