Boston's Historic Park Street Church: The Story of an Evangelical Landmark
An invaluable landmark and an inspiration to all Christians, Boston's Park Street Church has led the way in missions, education, and evangelism and has had an enduring impact on the life of this nation. In this fascinating book, gifted historian Garth Rosell tells the amazing two-hundred year story of one of America's most famous churches. Peppered with illustrations and photographs, this chronicle turns a fresh eye on the church's storied past and the exceptional people who have helped it thrive for two centuries. "[This] is at once a wonderful read and more than a record of the church's two hundred years of faithful ministry-it is required reading for all who ask, 'What will ensure that my church will be faithful to our Lord in the years that are to come?'"-Walter C. Kaiser Jr., President Emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary "Rosell's study of this Boston landmark sharpens our understanding . . . and it will inspire future generations to keep alive the church's rich legacy."-Dana L. Robert, Truman Collins Professor of World Christianity and History of Mission, Boston University School of Theology "This important book is no typical congregational history. Garth Rosell has given us an exciting and inspiring story of a historic center of vital ministry that has had-and is still having!-a profound impact on the hearts and minds of people around the world who are serving the cause of the gospel of Jesus Christ."-Richard J. Mouw, President and Professor of Christian Philosophy, Fuller Theological Seminary Garth M. Rosell is professor of church history, chair of the Division of Christian Thought, and director of the Ockenga Institute of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts.
