|Summary, etc.:|| "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."--Back cover.
