STUDIES IN CHURCH HISTORY - Essays in Honor of Daniel W. Petty

Because Dan’s PhD degree from Texas Christian University was in history with an emphasis on church history, and many of the courses Dan taught at Florida College were in the discipline of church history, the contributors to this volume have written essays relating to church history. In addition, Chairman McClister has chosen to include seven lectures and festschrift essays Dan wrote that were previously published by the Florida College Press.
