“It was hard and discouraging to be a Covenanter from 1920 to 1980, but the church accomplished much in those years: produced some valiant Christians, established new missions in Manchuria and Japan, saw ‘outsiders’ join the church even while it lost many of its own children, and slowly strengthened its seminary, college, and home for retired people.
In the Christian Amendment Movement, it made one final effort to confront the nation about its collective rebellion against the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a story that needs telling.”
—from the Preface
William J. Edgar gives a compelling and detailed account of the denomination’s history from 1920 to 1980. The book is well researched, gathering information and narratives from original sources and oral histories.
