9781601781628: Presbyterian and Reformed Churches: A Global History

In 1905, Westminster Press published History of the Presbyterian Churches of the World by church historian Richard Clark Reed (1851-1925). Reed's 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 Based on Reed's original work as well as an unpublished manuscript by Presbyterian historian Thomas Hugh Spence Jr. (1899-1986), 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, James McGoldrick revises and updates Reed's and Spence's 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.

Review:

This comprehensive resource on international Calvinism offers a panoramic view of the catholicity of the Reformed and Presbyterian tradition and a reminder of the global dimensions of our 'like precious faith'. A remarkable achievement. --John Muether, Professor of Church History and Library Director, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando

This book declares the mighty works of the Lord in history, and how He has openly shown His righteousness through biblical truth in the sight of the nations. It is touching to see how large and widespread the Presbyterian and Reformed family is across the world. This highly informative and easy-to-read book will be appreciated both by those who know little about the subject and those who know a lot. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and learned a great deal. --Joel R. Beeke, President of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
