This complete, illustrated history of Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue (New York City) chronicles the first 175 years of one of the great parishes of the Episcopal Church.Drawing on primary sources and original research, J. Robert Wright portrays the building, congregations, and rectors who have given shape to the historical development of Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, More than the history of a single parish, this volume is valuable for its reflection of the whole Episcopal Church and, more broadly, for its insights into the challenges of church life against the background of modern culture.

Wright is the historiographer of the Episcopal Church and St. Mark's Professor of Ecclesiastical History at General Theological Seminary, New York City.
