Bound Together in Love: The Creation of Presbyterian Women, 1978–1988



By Barbara McDonald

Barbara McDonald employs the theme of courtship to illustrate the founding of our current Presbyterian Women, which was born of a merger of two predecessor PW organizations, United Presbyterian Women (United Presbyterian Church, U.S.A.) and Women of the Church (Presbyterian Church, U.S.). As we approach PW’s 30th anniversary (and beyond!), this sweet and modest booklet deserves a fresh reading, particularly as we chart our way—in love—to our next destination as an organization and as faithful Presbyterian women.
