Church Renewal Brings Cultural Transformation: The English Revolution Of the Early Nineteenth Century by Dr. Herbert Schlossberg, PCUSA Elder and author of numerous articles and books including Idols for Destruction and A Fragrance of Oppression.  Schlossberg writes, "In spite of considerable progress in the last few years, there is a good deal of discouragement among those seeking renewal in the church and the society.  It is as if people are despairing of ever achieving real reform.  Is it really possible that a society and a church that have lost their way to the extent ours have done have ever come back to some semblance of health and faithfulness? Yes...to illustrate this let us consider one particular period of history, the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in England."  May/Jun 1998 Theology Matters p. 1
