Publisher's Description

Presbyterians and Pensions traces the historical development of the modern Board of Pensions of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and its predecessor organizations from colonial times to the present. It is a critical work that examines the Board of Pensions in its broad historical, social, economic, and theological context. Utilizing the case study approach, the authors show how a major Protestant denomination produced its present retirement and protection program for church employees. This is an insightful historical presentation of a vital part of the church's mission and provides very interesting and critical reading for those interested in the history of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
