Focusing on the expression of faith among American Presbyterians, this book surveys important developments in Presbyterian theology and worship. It provides an understanding of the changes in mainstream Protestantism and American Christianity, and analyzes preaching, worship, hymnody, devotional materials, and social justice pronouncements. The authors include both the achievements and the ambiguous legacy of this developmental stage in American Presbyterian history.

Through its examination of American Presbyterianism, the Presbyterian Presence series illuminates patterns of change in mainstream Protestantism and American religious and cultural life in the twentieth century.
