The author, Clerk of the General Assembly of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, offers here a massive compilation of church history through the first part of the 19th century. However, of more immediate import to the historical scholar is the substantial section (pp.559-663) devoted specifically to a history of the Church in Tennessee, with an appendix of biographical sketches of prominent churchmen.
