This Far by Faith - The Unfinished Story of Madison Square Church - Edited by Alfred E. Mulder and Jackie Venegas
The song "We've Come This Far by Faith," with its hopeful lyrics and upbeat rhythm, has been a longtime favorite at the racially diverse Madison Square Church.
By faith a Dutch-immigrant congregation in the Oakdale Park neighborhood started a Mission among English-speaking folks in the Madison Square area.
By faith Madison persisted in its mission--navigating an ever-changing terrain, embracing a diverse community, and pursuing racial reconciliation with justice.
THIS FAR BY FAITH recounts Madison's often messy obedience and God's equally surprising grace. Madison faces the future "leaning on the Lord."
