The Development of the Church
“The Principle of Protestantism” and other Historical Writings of Philip Schaff
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Philip Schaff is well known for his organic view of church history that he hoped would free American Protestants from anti-Catholicism and encourage them to embrace a vision of the church's progress toward union. The writings collected in this edition support that reputation, and reveal the relevance of Schaff in both his day and ours. This volume is a must-read for those discovering the origin of the ecumenical movement."
