Sketches from Scottish History of Brief Biographies of the Scottish
This little volume is presented without any
claim to originality. It is, indeed, nothing more than a book of
quotations from those glorious old records, the History of the Scottish
Church. These stories are selected without reference to chronological
order, and are intended to stimulate the young to greater self-denial,
and more ardent love for the church of their fathers, by placing before
them a few noble examples, of whom the world was not worthy.
The number of these stories might have been indefinitely increased, but
enough have been given to excite the reader to learn more of the history
of that church which so nobly battled for Christís crown and kingdom,
amidst fire and sword.
