From the Forward by Sinclair Ferguson:
If you care at all about the Christian church you must brace yourself for a roller coaster of emotions as you read A Sad Departure.

The title contains a double entendre. On the one hand it alludes to the departure from the Church of Scotland of about forty ministers and many members. On the other hand it refers to the catalyst of these actions the departure of the Kirk from its moorings in the authority of Scripture by its decisions on 'the gay question'.

A Sad Departure tells a dark story, almost novelesque in character. A church's Theological Commission reaches a unanimous conclusion on the teaching on marriage given in its ultimate authority, the Bible. But then its General Assembly acts in a way that ignores, demeans, and rejects that teaching. Thus behind these sad departures lies the prior and much sadder departure of the Kirk from its sacred constitution.

This is a thoughtful, honest and solemnising book written out of a deep personal and pastoral concern for the cause of the gospel.

About the Author:

David J. Randall was born in Edinburgh in 1945 and attended Leith Academy Primary School and George Heriot's Secondary. He graduated in arts and divinity at Edinburgh University and then studied for a Th.M. at Princeton Theological Seminary. After assistantships in Broomhouse and Carrick Knowe, he served as minister of Macduff Parish Church in Aberdeenshire from 1971 to 2010, where he preached through the whole Bible. He has served the wider church in various capacities, including a term as convener of the Church of Scotland's Apologetics Committee (now 'Why Believe?'). He is now retired from full-time pastoral ministry, and serves as chairman of the Solas Centre for Public Christianity based in Dundee.

David's publications include 'Believe It or Not!' answering objections to the Christian faith, and 'Grace Sufficient' (a biography of missionary Elizabeth Mantell of Malawi). He contributed a regular newspaper column, 'It Makes You Think' for the Banffshire Journal for 26 years, and more recently has edited 'Why I Am not an Atheist: Facing the Inadequacies of Unbelief', published in 2013.

Review:

'David Randall has written a lucid manifesto explaining why he and others are leaving the Church of Scotland now. While that may seem a narrow issue of no concern to believers in the rest of the world, it is certainly not. The arguments he proffers for departure from the historic church stand equally true and compelling for any believer or pastor in any denomination or association whose official doctrine declares a departure from the word of God, written and incarnate.' --John MacArthur
