In these studies, Alexander Cheyne explores the history of the churches of Scotland since the Reformation. Professor Cheyne looks especially at the leaders: among them Robert Rollock, Robert Leighton, William Carstares, Thomas Chalmers, John Tulloch, John Caird, Henry Drummond, John Baillie, and Donald Baillie. He illuminates just how much change and diversity in thought, worship, government, and culture these four hundred years have witnessed in the churches—far greater than has traditionally been supposed.
Professor Cheyne also describes the importance of the constant interaction between ecclesiastical and academic affairs, and the very wide influence of the churches on Scottish life as a whole.
Studies in Scottish Church History is a significant work of Scottish history and reference.
