Some are small congregations ― 20 or 30 members ― and some are among the largest and wealthiest churches in .

    A Brief History of the Presbyterians offers laity and clergy a succint and thorough introduction to the history of Presbyterianism. James Smylie chronicles the origins of the Reformed tradition and carries the sage through each subsequent era up to the eve of the twenty-first century, focusing on Presbyterianism in North by: 7.

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is the latest of several Protestant denominations that have dropped bans on gay clergy. Others include the United Church of Christ, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and The Episcopal Church.
