This volume is an outgrowth of the Think Tank on Congregational Affiliation, a conference held at Brandeis University in October 1992. The conference and this publication were made possible by a grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc., an Indianapolis private family foundation with a long-standing interest in American religion.
