Essays showing how Presbyterianism and Calvinism have played out since the Scottish Reformation

An affirmation of the Scottish, Reformed and Presbyterian heritage at the threshold of the new millennium. It contrasts contemporary Scotland’s political and social liveliness and its spiritual condition, including widespread ignorance or distortion of religion’s definitive role in shaping the country’s history and culture.

This book contains twelve essays on what we have inherited since the Sottish Reformation: 

  • William Storrar on three portraits of Scottish Calvinism,
  • David Wright on the tension between a Christian Kirk and a National Kirk,
  • Donald MacLeod explores the myths of Calvinism,
  • Johnston Mckay the relevance of the Kirk,
  • Stewart Lamont reflects on the IT revolution.
  • Donald Smith and Russell Barr consider structures, boundaries and horizons,
  • Lorna Paterson the role of women in the Kirk,
  • Catherine Hepburn writes on ‘The Burning Rosebush’,
  • T.F. Torrance on theological and natural science,
  • George Bruce on ‘The Liveliness O’Mither Tongues’,
  • Ian Mackenzie on music in church.

The book has a lively essay by the journalist Robert Kernohan who has edited the book.
