Preserving a Reformed Heritage

Date: Tuesday, 07 August 2018
Author: Rev John W Keddie

PRESERVING A REFORMED HERITAGE tells the story of aspects of the history of the Free Church of Scotland in the 20th Century. It is an account of seeking to maintain Church life and witness based on the supreme authority of the Bible as the infallible Word of God.

The book is neither an official history nor an exhaustive one. Yet it provides a broad sweep of the Church’s life throughout the century. It is the first such history to be produced of the post-1900 Free Church of Scotland.

There are four parts to the book:

Part 1 – The Nineteenth Century Scottish Church scene and the Church Union of 1900
Part 2 – Recovery and Rebuilding
Part 3 – Maintaining the Faith in a changing world
Epilogue – Quo Vadis?

Besides this, eight Appendices provide information on various aspects of the Church’s history and ministry in the 20th century.
