About this title:

Synopsis: How freely can salvation be offered to people? How do Law and Grace find balance? What influence does Federal Theology have on the overall theological enterprise? How does a confessional church interact with both the civil government and other religious communions? These are the questions roiling the twenty-first century-church; these were the questions threatening to splinter the Scottish church in the early eighteenth century. In those earlier days of mounting theological confrontation within the Scottish church, Ebenezer Erskine--a parish minister renowned for his evangelistic zeal--had a major role to play. Through this examination of the theology and ministry of Erskine, one therefore gains not only a deeper understanding of a man critically important within Presbyterian history, but also insight into the pressing theological disputes of the day. By analyzing Erskine's contributions to ongoing theological discussion, greater clarity is gained on the development of Federal Theology; on the root causes of the Marrow controversy; and on the challenges involved as increasing religious diversity penetrated lands once dominated by national churches. In these areas and more, Erskine serves both to illuminate an obscure era and to refine modern understandings of still controversial theological issues.

About the Author: Stephen Myers (PhD, University of Edinburgh) is pastor of Pressly Memorial Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Statesville, North Carolina, and Visiting Professor of Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina.

"Stephen Myers's meticulous study of Ebenezer Erskine is set to become the standard point of reference in the field. In addition to shedding light on Erskine's key role in the founding of the Secession Church, Myers has produced an illuminating account of the earlier Marrow controversy in which Erskine and his colleagues were embroiled. Clearly written and thoroughly researched, this is an important contribution to our knowledge of Scottish theology and church life during the transitional period of the early eighteenth century." --David Fergusson, Professor of Divinity, University of Edinburgh, Scotland "Stephen Myers is a very careful scholar, who traces to their roots theological and ecclesiastical themes that were predominant (and controversial) in the eighteenth century. He explores the interconnections of thoughts, theologians, and church parties; all in due order: a model of lucidity and coherence in a complex field of publications. He deals most helpfully on the eighteenth century doctrine among Scottish Presbyterians (of opposing parties) concerning the perennial issue of Justification by faith. . . . I shall be recommending this volume to my classes in years to come." --Douglas F. Kelly, Richard Jordan Professor of Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina Stephen Myers (PhD, University of Edinburgh) is pastor of Pressly Memorial Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Statesville, North Carolina, and Visiting Professor of Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina.
