In this convenient biographical collection, Dr Millar gives us a look at the lives of ‘the Six Johns’ of the Scottish Reformation. We have all heard of the life of John Knox, and deservedly so, but now we get to know the other leading lights of the Scottish Reformation. John Willock, John Winram, John Spottiswood, John Row and John Douglas all played and major part in establishing reform in Scotland and in the composition of the Scots Confession of Faith, 1560, which is conveniently appended at the back of the volume. This was still used as the set confession of the Church in Scotland until 1647, when the Westminster Standards replaced it.
Dr. S. J. Millar is an Elder in Bethel Free Church (Continuing,) Ayr, and Chairman of the Scottish Reformation Society.
