In a brief, narrative survey, Balmer and Fitzmier trace the history of the Presbyterian tradition, from its roots in Europe to its manifestations in contemporary America. The six chapters cover the European origins of Presbyterianism; the growth of Presbyterianism in the Northern and Southern states during the nineteenth century; and the development of Presbyterianism in twentieth-century America. Concluding with a Chronology and Bibliographic Essay, this is an ideal text for courses in Church History, American Religious History, or American social and cultural history.

Editorial Reviews

?A meticulously documented abridged institutional history that clearly explains schisms and reunions within American Presbyterianism, such as the Old School/New School controversies, within their wider theological and social context. It brilliantly frames the persistent place of the Westminster Standards in all church debates, both doctrinal and ethical.??Religious Studies Review
