Editorial Reviews

Ecclesiastical History
...helpful...a useful introduction to the Mercersburg Theology for general readers as well as a resource for academic historians.
Church History
The editors have likewise served us well by pulling the thoughts of these writers together into a brief volume that identifies, locates, and explores important characterisitics of a seminal nineteenth-century servant of the church.
Westminster Theological Journal
This volume is a welcome addition to the growing literature on the Mercersburg theology. I highly recommend it to those who are interested in nineteenth-century Reformed thought, as well as those who are searching for a more satisfying alternative to the "new measures" of the modern church-growth movement.
Journal of Ecumenical Studies
...a timely book...the essays in this collection together present a sweeping view of Nevin's life...
