Praise for "St. Mark's Journey"
"In this detailed and vividly written history of one Episcopal parish in one Callifornia city, Bruce Merritt presents a compelling narrative that is at once site-specific as well as expressive of the larger history of the Episcopalian and urban experience in the California of the American Century."
- KEVIN STARR, Author of Americans and the California Dream series
"This is a well-written and carefully researched history of an important church. The book will speak to church members as well as those interested in local history. A parish history at its best!"
- THE REV. DR. SHERYL KUJAWA-HOLBROOK,
Professor, Claremont School of Theology
