Item Description...
The inspirational story of Alexander Peden, known as 'Peden the Prophet', Minister of the Covenanters, is given dramatic life in this heroic novel of seventeenth century Scotland. The author's meticulous attention to historical detail provides a fitting backdrop to this unique account of a vital period in Scotland's political and religious development. Who were the Covenanters? Why is their story important to us today? Robert Watson sets the scene for answers to these questions in a fictional but historically accurate story. From Greyfriars' Kirk, Edinburgh, through South Western Scotland and North Eastern Ireland, the reader witnesses the everyday encounters of a man driven by a mission - Peden the Prophet. Robert Watson M.A., B.D., taught classics and history in the Glasgow area for many years. His second degree in theology was obtained from Trinity College at the University of Glasgow. A post as Historical Researcher on Old Glasgow in the area gave him an invaluable opportunity to begin the detailed research required to investigate the background for this novel.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A true hero of Scotland.  Sep 15, 2007
I came across this book tucked away in the corner of a used book store in Scotland. I had only just recently heard about the Covenanters movement and so I felt it was a bit providential. It proved to be a real treasure.

The book tells the story of one of the most incrdible Scottish heroes of the faith, Alexandar "Sandy" Peden. He was a simple church minister, with an incredible gift for the prophetic. There were actually many prophetic ministers in Scotland throughout this period. Unfortunately, however, most of their stories (John Knox included) have become so sterilised through the years that many Presbyterians would struggle to believe them today.

As a young church minister Peden was forced out of his parish when the King of England reneged on the covenant agreement that he had signed with the repesentatives of the nation, giving the Church of Scotland freedom from the crown. All those who refused to submit to the crown were forced out of their churches and homes, and had to meet in secret open air meetings called Covenanticles. The result was that they were forced into to abject poverty and, in many cases, torture, imprisonment and death. Understandably, some took to arms in an effort to defend themselves against this tyranny. It's worth mentioning that Peden and many others advocated maintaining peaceful measures, even in the face of such difficulties.

Through Peden's years of living in the wilds of Scotland, sleeping in caves and forests to evade capture, he performed numerous miracles and had incredible visions. The stories are too incredible to tell here, you need to read them for yourself.

This book is the work of years of research by Dr. Robert Watson, a University Professor from Glasgow. Much of what he writes about was based upon documented first hand accounts. Many of these accounts are archived in the library at the University of Edinburgh. He writes in story format and I'm sure has taken some minimal creative license in telling the story, but remains true to the events.

This book is easily in my top ten all time favorites. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in exploring the real Scottish church history.
