Noted author and Presbyterian Louis B. Weeks offers a timely update to his primer on the life, history, tradition, and beliefs of the Presbyterian Church.
Offering more than just a brief overview, Weeks ties explanations of Presbyterianism to actual congregational situations and examines major themes in Reformed life. New sections address spiritual practices, 'hot-button' issues among Presbyterians, changes in hymnody, and respect for God's creation.
The adoption of a Presbyterian Brief Statement of Faith, the growth of newer Reformed churches worldwide and their influence on Christian worship and work in the U.S.A., and the growing importance of other world religions also receive Weeks' authoritative attention.
