James W. Campbell
Scottish Reformation Society
James Begg (1808-83) was one of the conservative leaders of the Free Church of Scotland in the late nineteenth century. A man with a broad vision for the Christian Church in Scotland, he was deeply involved in the efforts to uphold biblical principles in the face of the strongly running tide of liberalism. This book looks at three aspects of his life: the part that he played in the Voluntary Controversy in the 1860s and 70s; his work in helping the poor in Scottish cities; and his opposition to Roman Catholicism. Though written from an academic standpoint, its warm approach will, we hope, make this book profitable to Christians in the 21st century.
