Scottish Federalism and Covenantalism in Transition
The Theology of Ebenezer Erskine
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Stephen Myers's meticulous study of Ebenezer Erskine is set to become the standard point of reference in the field. In addition to shedding light on Erskine's key role in the founding of the Secession Church, Myers has produced an illuminating account of the earlier Marrow controversy in which Erskine and his colleagues were embroiled. Clearly written and thoroughly researched, this is an important contribution to our knowledge of Scottish theology and church life during the transitional period of the early eighteenth century."
--David Fergusson, Professor of Divinity, University of Edinburgh, Scotland
"Stephen Myers is a very careful scholar, who traces to their roots theological and ecclesiastical themes that were predominant (and controversial) in the eighteenth century. He explores the interconnections of thoughts, theologians, and church parties; all in due order: a model of lucidity and coherence in a complex field of publications. He deals most helpfully on the eighteenth century doctrine among Scottish Presbyterians (of opposing parties) concerning the perennial issue of Justification by faith. . . . I shall be recommending this volume to my classes in years to come."
--Douglas F. Kelly, Richard Jordan Professor of Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina
