This insightful, all-encompassing chronicle spanning 400 years traces the fascinating rise of the Episcopal Church, founded in an age of fragmentation and molded by the powerful movements of American history: the Great Awakening; the American Revolution; the Civil War; two World Wars and the Depression; and the social upheavals of the post World War II years.

This revised edition of the now-classic text on the Episcopal Church brings the story up-to-date with a new chapter on the 1990's. This new chapter pays special attention to the Church's renewal efforts, Presiding Bishop Browning's time in office, the issue of homosexuality, changing leadership dynamics, liturgical change, and Lambeth 1998.
