This work explores the conflicts within colonial American Presbyterianism, providing a new explanation for the schism of the Presbyterian Church in 1741. Because of the nature of the conflict, the struggle for the soul of the church provides a rich case study in which to explore the broader transformation of patterns of thought and social structures in the middle colonies.
