The Erosion Of Calvinist Orthodoxy: Drifting From The Truth In Confessional Scottish Churches PBBy: Ian Hamilton
|Publisher||Christian Focus Publications|
Nineteenth century Scotland was seen as a Christian nation composed of church-going people. The future looked bright and optimism marked many of the church leaders and congregations. Yet most of them were blind to the presence of the warning signs that ultimately caused the decline of the church in Scotland. To understand how this happened, Ian Hamilton looks at the changes that took place within the United Presbyterian Church and analyses the roots, developments and consequences of these changes, particularly the departure from the doctrines summarised in the Westminster Confession of Faith. This book also includes discussion on the nature of subscription to the Confession at time of 1733 secession, the atonement controversy 1841-45, the Union controversy 1863-1873 and 1879 United Presbyterian Church Declaratory Act. --from publisher description.
