In 1905, Westminster Press published History of the Presbyterian Churches of the World by church historian Richard Clark Reed (1851–1925). Reed’s book, intended as a textbook for college and seminary students, covered the history of churches that subscribed to Presbyterian polity from the New Testament era to the beginning of the twentieth century.

James McGoldrick’s Presbyterian and Reformed Churches: A Global History picks up the story of Presbyterian and Reformed churches where the earlier works left off. McGoldrick revises and updates Reed’s original volume, tracing the history of Presbyterian and Reformed churches in individual nations and regions around the globe. McGoldrick covers the major events, leaders, and institutions influencing Presbyterian and Reformed church history in a readable style that is ideally suited for classroom study as well as for independent reading. A list of suggested additional readings concludes each chapter.

With the Logos edition, this valuable volume is enhanced by amazing functionality and features. Scripture and ancient-text citations link directly to English translations and original-language texts, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches with the Topic Guide to instantly gather relevant biblical texts and resources. Tablet and mobile apps let you take the discussion with you. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

This book declares the mighty works of the Lord in history, and how he has openly shown his righteousness through biblical truth in the sight of the nations. It is touching to see how large and widespread the Presbyterian and Reformed family is across the world. This highly informative and easy-to-read book will be appreciated both by those who know little about the subject and those who know a lot. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and learned a great deal.

This comprehensive resource on international Calvinism offers a panoramic view of the catholicity of the Reformed and Presbyterian tradition and a reminder of the global dimensions of our ‘like precious faith.’ A remarkable achievement.
