In History of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America 1920-1980, learn:

• How the RPCNA discarded its “Covenanter” nickname, lost awareness of being heirs of Scotland’s Second Reformation, ended its political dissent, set aside the Covenant of 1871, adopted a radically revised Psalter in the ’70s, and replaced the 1806 Testimony with glosses on the 1648 Confession

• How they turned to centralized authority and multiplying programs for youth, attempting to stem numerical decline

• How war ended missions in Middle East and opened a door to Japan; how missions to American Indians, southern Black people, immigrant Chinese and Jews ended, rural churches struggled, and “church planting” in suburbs began; how the seminary, college, and the home for the aged professionalized; and how the Christian Amendment Movement and Reformation Translation Fellowship began

• How the church borrowed from Westminster Seminary, the Navigators, and some dubious others, and remained steadfastly loyal to the faith once for all delivered to the saints

• How they tracked American history in the exuberant ’20s, depressed ’30s, wartime ’40s, uneasy ’50s, revolutionary ’60s, and changing ’70s, to emerge in 1980 still hoping to grow
