Overview Seeking a Better Country is a readable and lively survey of American Presbyterianism since its founding in 1706.

It is a trenchant assessment of the Presbyterian legacy in the United States by two leading conservative scholars. It should be on the bookshelves of pastors and students alike.

Seeking a Better Country: 300 Years of American Presbyterianism Sep 17, 2008
Excellent book with all of the names, dates, and stories you expect in a well-researched book of history. But this book also traces the rhythmns and trends of American Presbyterianism so that the reader finds clearer insight about current ecclesial isses as we trace similar tensions back through the Presbyterian system of roots. The opening chart of Presbyterian history is worth the price of the book.
