Book Description

The sixty stormy years following the death of John Knox—years of conflict, persecution and revival— form the background of this biography by D. C. Macnicol.

Robert Bruce’s commanding preaching, his iron resolution and, above all, his daily fellowship with God, provided an example which his contemporaries and successors could never forget. ‘No man’, declared John Livingstone, ‘since the apostles’ time spake with such power’.
