Product Description

The drama in this book took place in Scotland in the late seventeenth century when English Kings, who saw themselves as head of the church, conducted a twenty-eight year reign of terror intended to destroy the Presbyterian church. Historians refer to those persecuted as 'Covenanters' because they had sworn a covenant to preserve their faith in Scotland and promote the reformation of religion in England and Ireland. Thousands chose to suffer persecution rather than give in to the king, hundreds died.

Publisher's Description

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.
