New book on Thomas Chalmers

A new publication is available from the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) Publications Committee. The title is Thomas Chalmers – “The chief Scottish man of his Time” and the author is Rev. John Keddie.

This brief biographical sketch (34 pages) covers the life and times of this extraordinary Scotsman. On the burial of his mortal remains in Edinburgh in 1847 it was said that although it was “the dust of a Presbyterian minister which the coffin contained; and yet they were burying him amid the tears of a nation, and with more than kingly honours.”

Chalmers was a man of great erudition and humble Christian faith. This new study brings this great Scottish man of faith to life, and exemplifies the Bible proverb: “The memory of the just is blessed” (Proverbs 10:7).

John W. Keddie is a retired minister of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) and served as lecturer in Church History & Church Principles at its Seminary in Inverness from 2008 to 2019.
