Excerpt from Some Turning-Points in Church History
These lectures are an attempt to consider those particular crises in Church History which have been so far reaching as to determine the form of the organization of the Christian Churches. Their polity has been determined chiefly, I believe, by four outstanding historical events; the founding of the Church, the establishment of the Christian Ministry, the organization of delimited National Churches and the formation of free Churches, independent of both ecclesiastical and civil authority. One lecture is devoted to each of these pivotal events and to them a fifth is added which deals with the establishment of free churches on the shores of America.
The first of these lectures appeared in The Harvard Theological Review for January, 1917, and three of them have been delivered at Union Theological Seminary.
