Meaningfull book Nov 20, 2009
The book is worth getting just for the introduction by Gordon Hugenberger. What a great synopsis of the Christian faith. The whole book was uplifting and worth reading. I enjoyed seeing how God worked through one Church over two centuries. The fact brought out by the book that the the church was started when Thomas Jefferson was President really put in perspective for me how "historical" the church really is. I hope you get the chance to read this book.
