Editorial Reviews

J. Ligon Duncan III
At last a brief, popular introduction to Presbyterianism that I can put in the hands of Bible-believing, gospel-loving Presbyterians and other evangelicals interested in this part of the Christian family. Readable, sympathetic, and circumspect.
Bryan Chapell
The people who fill Bible-believing Presbyterian churches increasingly have little Presbyterian background. Lucas provides a terrific resource to get everyone up to speed . . . highly readable.
Peter A. Lillback
Dr. Sean Lucas is a first rate scholar who writes with depth, breadth and passion for his topic. On Being Presbyterian is highly recommended for anyone who wants to explore Presbyterian traditions down to their roots.
George W. Robertson
May prove to be one of the most important Presbyterian books in our generation. . . . useful in training young and old, new Christian and old warrior, lay person and theologian, broad evangelical and lifetime Presbyterian.
Richard D. Phillips
Increasing numbers of Christians are seeking to transcend the spirituality of private preference and enter into meaningful community with other believers: past, present, and future. For conservative Presbyterians, Lucas provides a most helpful, inspiring account of both the what and the why of our church identity.
