True or False?

The 'Presbyterian Rebellion' was led by the Reverend Dr. John Witherspoon, president of the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University) and the only clergyman to sign the Declaration of Independence.

John Calvin has been called the virtual founder of America.

The Presbyterians led the American Revolution from the pulpit.

The answers are all "True." And the facts behind them are as compelling as any history ever written

John Calvin inspired a spiritual revolution that spread like wildfire throughout Europe, Great Britain and the United States of America. It touched the lives of men as diverse as John Knox, Thomas Carlyle and Abraham Lincoln and gave birth to "as radical and revolutionary a group of men and women as ever lived."

Here in compelling detail are the fiery personal lives of theologians Calvin and Knox; the unsettled battles of the Reformation; the Presbyterian role in the American Revolution; the growth and history of Presbyterianism in America - a combustible mixture of religion and politics; the Modernist-Fundamentalist split over the theories of Charles Darwin and Biblical Higher Criticism; contemporary issues dividing the churches, and Calvin's own answer to the problems of a splintered Christianity.
