Another Winner by Williston Walker Jan 26, 2001
This classic work includes the actual texts of Congregationalism's major "creeds and platforms"--statements on doctrine and polity adopted by various Congregational bodies. Walker's explanatory notes are particularly enlightening. The book, now regrettably out of print, would be useful to any student of New England history or Anglo-American Protestantism.
