Sweet Believing: Eight Character Studies of the Scottish Covenanters. The Scottish Covenanter movement of the mid-17th century was the second great wave of religious reformation in early modern Scotland. It was one which produced great religious leaders and martyrs. The opposition of the state and monarchy to this version of Christianity brought into sharp contrast the traditional religious views of church and state and the more radical ones of the rural population which adhered to the Covenanter cause. This study presents James Guthrie, Hugh MacKail, Richard Cameron, David Hackston, John Brown, Margaret MacLachlan, Margaret Wilson, John Nesbet, and James Renwick. These were men and women who lived and died at the core of the Covenanter movement in Scotland.
Fair Sunshine: Further Studies of the Scottish Covenanters. This is a work which seeks to honor and glorify the men who advanced the second great religious reformation in Scotland. James Mitchell, William Gordon, John Dick, and Donald Cargill faced challenges in the mid-17th century as difficult as those which Knox had encountered a hundred years earlier. These four men and their allies and followers defied monarchy and the state to advance a view of Presbyterianism which they held vital to the advancement of the true religion. This is a history, then, of true believers in the Covenanter movement.
