This thorough, carefully researched history sets church events against the background of social changes. This third revised edition will be up-to-date through the events of the 2012 General Convention of the Episcopal Church.

Robert W. Prichard has been teaching liturgy at Virginia Theological Seminary since 1979. While his primary publications have been in church history, he has contributed occasional articles to journals and collections about the liturgy. Prichard has been a General Convention deputy since 2006 and has twice served on the General Convention's Joint Committee on Liturgy and Music. At the convention of 2015, he served as one of the two secretaries of that body. He lives in Alexandria, Virginia.

"Prichard tells a lively story of the Episcopal tradition in America. He brings historical perspective to current debates, underlines the salutary force of creative leadership, and illumines the interplay between theological reflection, liturgical practice, and social change. This is a lucid and brisk account that brings the reader into the inner life of a denomination that has proven to be remarkably resilient. Prichard is both realistic about the challenges and hopeful about the possibilities. I found it engaging and instructive."—E. Brooks Holifield, Charles Howard Candler Professor, Emeritus, Emory University
