A Kirk Disrupted

Title: A Kirk Disrupted
Author: A. Donald Macleod

Charles Cowan, Scottish industrialist and philanthropist, was a longstanding member of the Sustention Fund Committee of the Free Church of Scotland. Cowan and others were responsible for raising the money necessary to support the work of the chuch following its formation in 1843. Cowan, who was deeply committed to the principles of the Free Church, took practical steps along with others to ensure that the rhetoric of the pulpit was supported by the generosity of the pew. This book is a splendid example of the best kind of history, because from its pages emerges a flesh and blood figure who touched the lives of many of his contemporaries.

For more information on Charles Cowan, you can read an interview with Dr. Macleod on the WTS website.
