This book is the product of four years of research and writing. I examined what I believe to be all the publicly available pieces of primary and secondary evidence, some 2,500 in all. I cited 900 of these in 2,200 footnotes. The text is 512 pages. It is an in-depth examination of the causes, nature, and results of the schism in the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina in 2012. 

At long last, the book is ready and available for purchase.
