The Birth of Presbyterianism

by Steven Paas

Jesus Christ is King of God’s Church. However who governs the Church under him? How is the Church to be ruled? How do these questions relate to the Word of God? This book, written by a Lecturer at Zomba Theological College and a Minister in the Presbyterian Church of Central Africa, investigates the origins and characteristics of Presbyterian church-rule after service in both The Netherlands and Malawi.

Contents: prelude to the reformation; church rule: by whom and how; continental reformers and the church; reception of continental thought; the Edwardian prayer book; restoration of the papacy and exile; the vestments’ controversy; the admonition controversy; failure of the grand design; and attacks from the right and left.
