Yet Saints Their Watch are Keeping: Fundamentalists, Modernists, and the Development of Evangelical Ecclesiology, 1887-1937
"Using the Northern Baptist Convention, the Presbyterian Church in the USA, and Disciples of Christ as case studies, Utzinger shows that, despite their infighting, evangelicals typically found ways to cooperate with one another in order to preserve their denominational institutions.

And, rather than indicating the eclipse of denominationalism, fundamentalism and modernism acted to revitalized those institutions and help them persist."--BOOK JACKET.

When we compare her with all other human institutions, we rejoice, for there is none like her. But when we judge her by the mind of her Master, we bow...
