Shaping of the United Church of Christ: An Essay in the History of American Christianity (Paperback)
This is the reissue of a classic interpretive essay in the history of American Christianity and the development of the United Church of Christ. Louis Gunnemann's original text is a narrative account of the union of the Evangelical and Reformed Church and the Congregational Christian churches in the 1950s through the United Church of Christ in the late 1970s. With a new foreword and a new chapter by Charles Shelby Rooks, this expanded edition brings the story of the UCC up to date. This volume is a must for anyone interested in the history and development of this vitally important Protestant denomination.
