The early histories of two additional groups of Protestants that later joined with the Congregationalists and German Reformed people to create the United Church of Christ are featured in this volume.

First, the reader is introduced to a small and little known American-born frontier religious movement that sought to restore simple practices of the early church. Its members rejected party labels and only wanted to be known as "Christians." Flourishing in northern New England, in the upper South, and on the Appalachian frontier, the "Christians" upheld liberty of conscience and had a deep passion for Christian unity.

Second, this volume of The Living Theological Heritage of the United Church of Christ documents the ways in which 19th-century immigrant German pietists, who also had a fervent commitment to church union, brought their ecumenical experience within the Church of Prussia Union and an irenic theology to the expanding mid-western frontier. The theological perspectives from these two groups, along with the maturing theological insights on the 19th century German Reformed and Congregational Churches, laid an important foundation for the faith and work of the United Church of Christ in the 20th century.
