Though he readily admits that he “may have taken Jonah’s part too much,” Hugh Martin gives in-depth consideration to the prophet’s circumstances.

Hugh Martin (1821–1885) was one of the young men training for the ministry of the Church of Scotland who, in 1843, cast in their lot with the Free Church of Scotland. In 1844 he became the first Free Church minister of Panbride where he remained for 14 years. At a time when the Calvinism of the Reformed Church in Scotland was discarded in favor of rationalistic Modernism, he edited The British and Foreign Evangelical Review, and The Watchword, thereby rendering invaluable service to Reformed evangelicalism. But he was a preacher by predilection, and a controversialist by constraint of circumstances.
