The drama depicted in this book took place in Scotland in the late seventeenth century when English Kings conducted a twenty-eight year reign of terror to destroy the Presbyterian Church. Historians refer to those persecuted as 'Covenanters' because they had sworn a covenant to preserve their faith. Thousands chose to suffer persecution rather than give in to the king, hundreds died.
The troubles of John Nisbet of Hardhill, began when he refused to have one of his children baptised by the Episcopalian curate, who had replaced his Presbyterian minister. This decision led to the loss of all his worldly wealth, the death of his wife and daughter, and ultimately his own execution. John Nisbet's son, James, survived to tell the tale of the lives of the Covenanters. Edwin Nisbet Moore, one of his descendants, in an inspiring book, tells us what the real issues were, and still are, for the church.
We need to regain something of the biblical radicalism that characterised the covenantors. This is a book well worth reading and taking to heart.
... of great historical and theological importance. We are confronted with the importance of commitment to God and the meaning and benefits of the Christian's covenantal relationship established by God.
'Our Covenant Heritage is a profound work, remarkable for its primary source material research. It contains many intriguing and revealing lessons for Christians of all denominations.'
'well done... reads well and tells the stories of martyrdom movingly.'
'Edwin Moore appreciates this heritage bequeathed to our generation by the faithful Scottish Covenanters. May you be gripped by a vision of God's greatness and a desire to serve Him faithfully as you read this helpful book.'
