BISHOP, ROBERT H., comp. An Outline of the History of the Church in the State of Kentucky, During a Period of Forty Years: Containing the Memoirs of Rev. David Rice, and Sketches of the Origin and Present State of Particular Churches, and of the Lives and Labours of a Number of Men who were Eminent and Useful in Their Day.

The first 100pp of this book contains the biography of "The Father of Presbyterianism in Kentucky," Rev. David Rice. Rice, born (1733) in Hanover County Virginia, studied under John Todd in Virginia and graduated from the College of New Jersey in 1761. He spent the next year in evangelistic work in North Carolina and Virginia, but settled as pastor in Hanover, Va., where he was ordained in 1763. In 1783 he settled in Mercer County, Kentucky, fifteen years later moving to Green County in southern Kentucky, continuing his missionary labors. "Later on he visited many parts of Kentucky and Ohio, where-ever he went organizing churches until he came to be known as the father of Presbyterianism in Kentucky."--Dict. of Amer. Biography, XV:p537. He was instrumental in the founding of Transylvania University, and elected as a member of the convention (1792) which framed the constitution of Kentucky. In the later event he attempted provide for the gradual emancipation of slaves but was defeated.

The book then continues with short chapters on: Cumberland Presbyterians, New-Lights, Associate Reformed Church, Associate Church, Baptist Churches of Kentucky, Methodist Churches, Churches in Lexington, New-Providence and Harrodsburgh Churches, as well as biographies of 12 early Kentucky Presbyterians including James M'Chord, James M'Gready, and Old Captain, the founder of the first African Baptist Church in Lexington. The last section reprints 3 works by David Rice: An Epistle to the Citizens of Kentucky, Professing Christianity, Especially Those that are, or have been, Denominated Presbyterians (1805); A Second Epistle to the Citizens of Kentucky... (1808); Slavery Inconsistent with Justice and Good Policy (1792). Howes: U.S.iana #478, "Most important ecclesiastical history of the early West." American Imprints #15453.
