Abstract: 

David Heim initiated a project that reported on 12 prominent mainline Protestant congregations 40 years after their initial feature in the Christian Century magazine. Heim employed Randall Balmer to interpret analyses of the congregations, and to pen a series of articles on each church noting particularly their journeys through tumultuous years of American history. The Christian Century published the series in its magazine and Balmer collected the essays, which were published in a book (OUP 1996).David Heim initiated a project that reported on 12 prominent mainline Protestant congregations 40 years after their initial feature in the Christian Century magazine.
