Rick Shrader‘s Review:
As I continue to read through all nineteen books by HBW, I’ve come to my first real disagreement with the esteemed author in this, his thirteenth, book written in 1927. Wright creates a typical context of early 1900s America. This, ironically to me, is set in Kansas City, MO and a small town northwest of the city. A rich Christian former-preacher-turned-businessman challenges the small town churches to drop their denominational names and converge into one church. The reasons given have to do with financial dishonesty, doctrinal differences, a lack of social purposes, and other contrived things that made a popular story even back then. It disappointed me that Wright would be so anti-denominational even in the 1920s. However, this has only rarely come up in his other writings.
