Reformation Dissent and Diversity, the story of Scotland’s Churches, 1560-1960 (London, Bloomsbury/T&T Clark, 2015)

Scottish Presbyterianism Re-established; the case of Stirling and Dunblane, 1687-1710 (Edinburgh, Edinburgh University Press, 2021)

These two books proffered for consideration for the degree of PhD by Published Works are widely different in scope, intent, intended readership and level of detail. Nonetheless they can be considered as a pair, dealing as they do with the stresses and tensions that have existed through the history of the church in Scotland and the effects that these stresses and tensions have had on the lives of the people. This essay presents the two books showing how they add significantly to the literature of Scottish Church history. In the one book this is by giving a modern, readable overview of the subject as a whole. The second book shows how events played out in one locality but adds materially to knowledge of an important period in the development of the church and nation.
