From the Publisher
"The authors describe the complex congregation in exceedingly careful detail, including a number of archival photographs that bring the narrative to life. Unlike so many congregational histories, difficult periods of tension and conflict are presented alongside feel-good rehearsals of the glory days....The authors and the congregation should be commended for this unique contribution to the field of congregational studies. The research is comprehensive."
-Sociology of Religion,
"There is much to commend it, and my students will be glad to find such a readable book on their syllabi."
-Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion,
"This is an excellent scholarly resource on liberal Protestant church history and is recommended for all congregational libraries."
-Church and Synagogue Libraries,
"A critical history, not a jingoistic celebration....scholarly volume."
