The Kincaid Books Logo

The Kincaid Books Logo is a Christian Symbol, but a subtle one so as not to drive away those to whom Christianity is anathema.

The Holy Trinity is fundamental to Christianity and is a cause of much confusion in the world. How can one God be three Persons? Saint Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland, used the shamrock to explain it. The shamrock leaf is one leaf, but has three equal parts. The Triune God is one God, in three equal Persons. The leaf represents Christianity in the form of God, being one whole made of three equal parts. The “K” and the “B” show the connection of Kincaid Books to Christianity.

Kincaid Books is American, so we think of our symbol as a clover leaf rather than a shamrock leaf. Our clover leaf has three parts, which symbolize the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. The logo therefore represents Christianity with the clover leaf, and Kincaid Books with the “K” and the “B”

Washington Gladden

Washington Gladden (1836-1918) was a leader of the Social Gospel Movement as well as the prolific author of some forty books and several hymns. In the 1898 book The Christian Pastor And The Working Church he wrote “The unity of Christendom is a problem to which the great ecclesiasticisms have lately been addressing themselves with unusual seriousness and insistance. It seems to be felt, on all sides, that something must be done about it.”

His strong belief in the need for Christian unity and cooperation is a basic theme in his novel, The Christian League of Connecticut, first published in 1883. It was one of the first novels in the Social Gospel genre, the most famous of which is probably In His Steps by Charles M. Sheldon and added the question “What Would Jesus Do?” to the religious landscape of America.
