In History of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America 1871-1920, learn:
- How the persecuted Cameronian remnant of the Church of
Scotland held to Second Reformation orthodoxy in the new United States, spread westwards
in lay-led Societies, and established their own institutions of governance, education,
and social welfare.
- How the Reformed Presbyterian (Covenanter) Church denounced the American Constitution for its protection of race-based slavery and also for its godlessness, endured much unpopularity, but nevertheless affected American society deeply.
- How in 1871 the Covenanter Church in an America drenched in sin signed a covenant with six commitments, then quarreled bitterly in 1891 over conflicting applications of two of them, and, by 1920, shrinking in size, lost interest in its covenant.
- How from 18711920, hundreds of Covenanter preachers, teachers, and doctors took the gospel of peace to freedmen in Selma, Alabama; Chinese and Jewish immigrants; Comanche tribesmen; Syrian Alawite villagers; peasants in South China; and others.
