Reformed Confessionalism in Nineteenth Century America: Essays on the Thought of John Williamson Nevinby Sam Hamstra Jr., Arie J. Griffioen
The past two decades have seen a resurgence of interest in American manifestations of the nineteenth century high-church movement, including the German Reformed confessionalism of the "Mercersburg theology" of John Williamson Nevin (1803-1886) and Philip Scharff (1819-1893). Reformed Confessionalism in Nineteenth Century America is a scholarly yet accessible resource for religious historians, mainline and evangelical ecumenists, liturgists, pastors, and educated laypersons. Contributors include James D. Bratt, Richard E. Wentz, Walter Conser, Jr., and John B. Payne.
