From the colonial era until well into the 20th century, the combination of faith and the income from tobacco built and sustained the Anglican parishes of Maryland.

The text covers not only the events and people at the local parish level but also gives insight into the necessary and practical business of managing a parish; supporitng a rector, maintaining church buildings, and nurturing the growth of congregations.
