This book is written to cure the amnesia from which all Presbyterians suffer who trace their origins to the first presbytery founded in 1706 in Philadelphia. We did write this book from the conviction and understanding that the church expressions of Presbyterianism in the Presbyterian Church (USA), EPC, PCA, and OPC have substantial and deep roots in the American Presbyterian experience begun when seven ministers assembled in Philadelphia for mutual edification and to ordain another man to the ministry of the Word and sacrament. As such our purpose is to help contemporary and future Presbyterians connect the dots between their own experiences in particular communions and the generations of Presbyterians who preceded them.
