John J. Murray on The Scottish Reformation

The Reformation 1560: The Greatest Year in Scotland’s History
John J Murray
60 pages, £3.00
Available from Rev David Blunt, davidblunt@fccontinuing.org

My pastor while I was a student in Edinburgh, John J. Murray, last year wrote a 60 page pamphlet to commemorate the 450th anniversary of the Scottish reformation.  I have been exceptionally remiss to have not mentioned this on the blog until now.  It is, as everything from the pen Mr Murray, worthy of careful attention.  It is written with the burden that:

…the Reformation was first and foremost a mighty work of the Holy Spirit. Spiritual renewal lay at the heart of the transformation which took place. God had mercy on Scotland and delivered her from a dark night. As we face a similar situation today we need to humble ourselves before God and repent of our sins and the sins of the Church and nation. We need to cry to him to once again have mercy on our land. May the light which shone at the Reformation shine again and scatter the darkness of Romanism, unfaithful Protestantism and secularism from our land. ‘O send out thy light and thy truth’ (Psa. 43:3).

An extract chapter is available here.  A commendation from Geoff Thomas is here.  Go get a copy 🙂
