Charles Cowan, advocate of science, art, and social science, spent thirteen years as a Member of Parliament and over thirty years as a founding member and advocate of the Sustention Fund Committee of the newly formed Free Church of Scotland. Within fifty years the fledgling denomination had built 730 new churches, 400 manses, 500 schools and a new theological college, in addition to paying the salaries of all its clergy through its Sustentation Fund. Cowan's legacy is deeply felt in the country of Scotland and the church today.

Review:

This book, with its detailed yet highly readable story, sets the pattern for others to follow. It is high-class biography, accurate and broad in scope, yet immensely interesting and informative. (Allan Harman ~ Research Professor of Old Testament, Presbyterian Theological College, Melbourne, Australia)

Don MacLeod has used a wealth of primary sources... to recreate the life of a leading lay champion of the Free Church of Scotland. (David Bebbington ~ Professor of History, University of Stirling, Stirling)

In telling this tale, Macleod has vividly brought to life the story of a man who was gregarious and generous. This book is a splendid example of the best kind of history. (Sandy Finlayson ~ Director of Library Services & Professor of Theological Bibliography, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

"Don MacLeod navigates an ocean of detailed evidence with consummate skill... A page-turner and eye-opener. (Sam McKinstry ~ Professor of Business and Financial History, University of the West of Scotland, Paisley)

Perhaps the best biography I have read for some time. Well written, extensively researched and highly informative. (English Churchman)

... An important but often forgotten fact that emerges throughout this highly readable biography is the central role played by gifted elders in the birth and growth of the Free Church of Scotland... Get this book and read it. (The Monthly Record ~ Magazine of the Free Church of Scotland)

... this account of both Free Church and the individual man of business is both fascinating and sobering. This biography demonstrates that it is possible to be scholarly and also readable. (Evangelicals Now)
