The place of the Mercersburg Theology in American religious history has been widely recognized.... It is usually viewed as one of the unique movements in 19th century American Protestantism, principally because it challenged many of the prevailing theological ideas and practices of the time. Two surveys of American religious history have described it as a theologically and liturgically creative high church movement (Robert T. Handy) and as the most creative manifestation of the Catholic tendency (Sydney E. Ahlstrom) among 19th century American Protestants.

Author: John Williamson Nevin (1803-1886) was a leading nineteenth-century American theologian. Originally trained in the Presbyterian Church, he took up a teaching post at Mercersburg Seminary of the German Reformed Church in 1841, and spent the rest of his life teaching and writing in that denomination, though his controversial work brought him fame (and infamy) well beyond its borders. Editor: Linden J. DeBie has taught at Seton Hall University and New Brunswick Theological Seminary. He is the author of Speculative Theology and Common-Sense Religion: Mercersburg and the Conservative Roots of American Religion (Pickwick, 2008). General Editor: W. Bradford Littlejohn is currently completing a PhD in Theological from the University of Edinburgh. He is the author of The Mercersburg Theology and the Quest for Reformed Catholicity (Pickwick, 2009).
