Not since W. J. Couper produced his Reformed Presbyterian Church in Scotland, Its Congregations, Ministers and Students, in 1925 and Matthew Hutchison’s The Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland published in 1893 has there been any published reference work, of any kind, on the continuing denomination.
The above authors refused to acknowledge the Reformed Presbyterian denomination after the Union of the Majority Synod with the Free Church in 1876.
In this volume James Dickson traces the history of the Ministers and Congregations from 1680 to the present day. A short biography of the Ministers who served the church and a brief history of each congregation are given.
A useful reference work, enhanced by a bibliography of the printed works of Reformed Presbyterian ministers, two additional appendices, an historical introduction and illustrations throughout.
A welcome addition to the library of those interested in Scottish Church history, being the only work to bring the history of the Reformed Presbyterian church, and her Ministers, up to the present day.
