I read this a while ago, but I still remember being stunned by all the craziness and political meandering and pandering that went on in the OPC. It's amazing how utterly irrelevant some church fights turn out to be; and this book is the epitome of irrelevant church fights between hard-up Presbyterians.

Although, everyday I drive by the infamous alley way that was mentioned in this book, and which has gone down in the annals of Presbyterian church history. This is an alley way that is about 12 ft. across, and it has separated the liberal mainline First Presbyterian Church from the splinter group that broke off from them in the 30's or 40's, the Bible Presbyterian Church. Two huge Presbyterian church buildings separated by 12 ft. of alley way!
