Editorial Reviews

Review

"For much of the first half of the 20th century, Mark Matthews was a vigorous and dominant figure in Seattle and the Northwest, playing a civic role well beyond that of pastor of the city’s largest church. Historian Dale Soden deftly portrays the man, his growing city, and a social influence that reached a national scope."―Charles P. LeWarne, author of Utopias on Puget Sound, 1885―1915

"As Dale E. Soden Shows, the Reverend Mark A. Matthews’s concerted efforts to create a ‘righteous community’ out of wide―open Seattle led to over three decades of religious/political jousting. This balanced biography of one of the most colorful western clerics of the early twentieth century provides a welcome addition to both religious history and the history of the Pacific Northwest."―Ferenc Szasz, University of New Mexico

Book Description

A biography of a colorful and controversial Presbyterian minister who played a significant public role in Seattle from 1900 to 1940.

Format: Hardcover
This was a great read for me, answers a lot of questions about early Christian workers in Seattle. My Bible study teachers parents were married by Rev. Mathews. They also led a great work here too. I enjoyed the book and the way the author put it all together.
Seattle was a wild city in the early days. I've often listened to my parents talk about it, they worked in the city.

This used book was rated "GOOD", but in fact it had many, many pages with underlining and comments written in the margin. It should have been "FAIR" or "POOR." I ordered it from Seattle Goodwill because we are in the suburbs outside Seattle -- otherwise I would have picked somewhere else.
