Bruce Mclennan

Paperback 2022-10-01

Publisher Description

Samuel Rutherford (ca.1600-1661) was an accomplished man--university scholar, defender of the Reformed faith, prolific author, astute political theorist, formidable defender of Presbyterian church government, Scottish commissioner at the Westminster Assembly from 1643 to 1647. However, Bruce McLennan introduces us to the life and times of Rutherford with a particular view to his pastoral labors.
