Rick Shrader‘s Review:

This is not quite an “Old Book Update” but it is a used book reminder!  I first read this book when it was published in 1979, having known of Dr. Pickering for some time before.  It was a timely book, coming before the 80’s and some struggles among churches over things like “secondary separation.”  It is still a valuable book in defining terms and dealing with biblical passages.

The sub-title, The Struggle for a Pure Church, is really the theme of the book.  Pickering reviews the separatists throughout church history and the price they paid for their position on holiness.  It also serves as a good text for clarifying 20th Century battles over modernism and ecumenicalism.
