Rev. Zachary Boyd's Preaching, Versus
Robin Hood and Davie Linsday
Of the Rev. Zachary Boyds pulpit utterances many
stories are told, of which the following may be taken as a fair sample:
Finding that several of his hearers left the church after the forenoon
service, in order to escape further infliction, the preacher made use of
this expression in his afternoon prayer.
"Now, Lord, thou sees that many people do go away from
hearing the Word, but had we told them stories of Robin Hood or David
Lindsay, they had stayed: and yet none of these are near as good
as the Word that I preach."
