SCOTS WORTHIES, HOWIE, J- John Howie (1735-1793) author of this classic work realized the power of Christian biography to instruct and inspire and to exemplify the outworking of the grace of God in human life. Howie's chief aim was to write in such a way that readers would be encouraged to grasp the heroic, sacrificial and glorious nature of life consecrated unreservedly to Christ. This volume offers stirring mini-Biographies of the great heroes of Scotland in the 16th and 17th centuries. Numerous old engravings and portraits add much interest to the work. 627 pp.
