It has been my pleasure to read carefully the manuscript by E. Rae Harcum entitled Saving Our Church. As a retired minister, having served fifty years in the United Methodist Church, how I wish it had been available and required reading early in my ministry.
— Rev. Milford C. Rollins, retired, United Methodist Church, Poquoson, VA.
A thoughtful, thought-provoking study of political processes in and beyond the local church. Within a theological context, Professor Harcum presents two case studies that illustrate the continuing struggle in every church between what Reinhold Niebuhr identified as "the will to love" and "the will to power."
— Vinson Sutlive, professor emeritus, Department of Anthropology, The College of William and Mary
