"This book will interest Presbyterians and those who love history, the church, and theology. It gives an intriguing glimpse of intellectual activity and ecclesiastical politics during the tumultuous nineteenth century. And it shows how history can help shape and guide our thinking today."
- David B. Calhoun is Professor of Church History, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, from the Foreword
"As a Presbyterian who regularly teaches a graduate seminar on the Confessions of the Christian Church, the publication of Professor Fortson's fascinating new study is a welcome event. With careful research and even-handed analysis, Fortson has enriched our understanding of this important area and has opened some interesting new possibilities for further study. You can be sure that The Presbyterian Creed will find a prominent place in my seminary syllabi."
