Comments

A volume from the private library of the Reverend John Henry Augustus Bomberger (1817-1890), founder and first President of Ursinus College.

Granted that Bomberger was involved in the issues raised by the "Americanization" of his denomination's continental heritage, this review of one aspect of the long New School - Old School rift among Presbyterians in America was of great interest to him.
