about

The past two decades have seen a resurgence of interest in American manifestations of the nineteenth century high-church movement, including the German Reformed confessionalism of the "Mercersburg theology" of John Williamson Nevin (1803-1886) and Philip Scharff (1819-1893). Reformed Confessionalism in Nineteenth Century America is a scholarly yet accessible resource for religious historians, mainline and evangelical ecumenists, liturgists, pastors, and educated laypersons. Contributors include James D. Bratt, Richard E. Wentz, Walter Conser, Jr., and John B. Payne.
Sam Hamstra, Jr., Ph.D., is Chaplin at Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, Illinois, where his responsibilities include teaching theology and directing the campus ministry. Arie J. Griffioen, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Religion and Theology, Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
