It is based on primary sources – Gladden manuscripts and correspondence. It places the preacher in the context of Congregationalism, his times, and his immediate situation.

Reviews

“… it is a valuable addition to the libraries of colleges, churches, and studious pastors. It is heavily documented from both primary and secondary sources.…The book has five fact-filled chapters dealing with Gladden’s life and times, his religious experience, and his work as a pastor and as a leader of worship.” – Rev. Dr. Harry R. Butman
