Reluctant to part with such a great treasure, David decided to publish the book for all to enjoy ... and also so he didn't have to part with his own book again !

The St.Andrews Seven

The St. Andrews Seven chronicles the rise of an emphasis on overseas missions among several students at St. Andrews and their Professor. Then, as now, there were those who felt that the Christian faith was not academically respectable, yet these students were both accomplished scholars and men of faith. Their effects on the establishment of overseas missions and colleges, especially in India, and the rigors of student life, faith and politics at St. Andrews in the 18th century are an inspiration for students even today.

Piggin & Roxborough



Dictionary of Scottish Church History

An excellent reference on Scottish Church History with wonderful insights to the otherwise shadowy realms of how the Christian faith has shaped Scotland and given the nation a significance in world history disproportionate to its size.
