ISBN It addresses the concerns of historians and theologians who have routinely accepted the established reading of this period of literary history in Scotland and offers a radically new interpretation of the complex relationships between literature and religious reform in early modern Scotland. In his book, A Scottish Christian Heritage, Iain Murray describes how for years the school of evangelical Christianity changed Scotland as a g on the evangel of the Reformation, and growing stronger in persecution, it turned a people to the Bible, and finally gave many of its best sons and daughters to the ends of the earth.

By locating him more precisely within a historical, political, and religious context.
