Now Available in Print!

This past week saw the release of Presbyterianism in the West Virginia: A History, which promptly landed as the "#1 New Release in Presbyterian Christianity" on 

The cover of the print version spotlights the front doors of the Old Stone Church of Lewisburg. Above the doors is an engraved stone, weather-worn from 200 years of exposure, that begs the viewer to give God the glory for what the early Presbyterians built so long ago. 

The cover of the Kindle version showcases the Ruffner Family Burial Ground in Malden, where the Kanawha Valley's most successful entrepreneurs and Presbyterians lie buried.

Here's the description:
Because of the first settlers' Scots-Irish heritage, Presbyterians could very well have predominated religion in West Virginia. They were the first to settle the territory, the first to evangelize, and the first to set up churches. But something happened over the decades. In spite of an auspicious start, Presbyterianism eventually took a back seat to other denominations. Presbyterianism in West Virginia: A History reviews Presbyterianism's origins, successes, and struggles, and then explains what today's Presbyterians should know if they hope to restore their pride of place in the Great State of West Virginia.
