----------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, 253 pages, b&w photos, ---"For the first time a history of the Synod of Southwestern Ontario is chronicled under one cover. No Small Jewel challenges its readers to consider certain of the spiritual, social and economic issues faced by the Presbyterian Church within a geographical area stretching from Niagara in the east to Windsor in the south-west to the Bruce Peninsula in the north. Social and religious issues are examined here, some of which have been on the agendas of this Synod over many generations. Others are as contemporary as blogs or the Aids pandemic. Scores of photos and maps illustrate the colourful history of the region. This book addresses the concern expressed by various church courts that many members under their pastoral oversight have limited knowledge of their denominational heritage. Published in part as a foil to rampant Congregationalism, No Small Jewel emphasizes the time-tested Presbyterian form of church government in order to help us grasp the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. Pastoral charges nave always been active in publishing church histories of their individual congregations. Splendid local publications have regularly appeared in print. However, many give short shrift to religious life beyond the boundaries of their individual church. The Committee on History of the Synod of Southwestern Ontario, Presbyterian Church in Canada, which developed and published No Small Jewel, will feel its efforts have been well rewarded if this book assists readers to more clearly envision the breadth and depth of Presbyterianism as well as its role within the Church Holy and Catholic"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
