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.
