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.

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

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.
