Life Sketches from Scottish History of Brief Biographies of the Scottish Presbyterian Worthies


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.
