    What are some good books on Scottish Reformed Christianity? I have the following:

    A Scottish Christian Heritage
    History of the Reformation in Scotland by John Knox
    Scots Worthies
    Fair Sunshine
    Messiah the Prince
    Lex Rex

    I think a great place to start is The Scottish Confession of Faith
    I'd post a link but the one I have saved on my phone says,
    We love our Covenanter Encyclopedia.
    As far as historical fictions go The Thunder by Douglas Bond does a great job at introducing you to Knox & his Crown & Covenant series is AMAZING.
    I also recommend Dane Love's Scottish Covenanter Stories

    Thank you for the list you provided too... I have most of them but the two I don't have, I now I plan to get!

    For their view of the church
    John MacPherson, The Doctrine of the Church in Scottish Theology (watch for a tinge of German liberalism but otherwise a great overview).
    James Bannerman, The Church of Christ, 2 vols; reprinted by Banner of Truth.
    James Durham, A Treatise Concerning Scandal (Naphtali Press, 1990) for their view of the unity of the church and the sin of schism and division, obviously in an establishment context.

    The Scottish Covenanters by J.G. Vos is fantastic.

    Thanks. I was at CBD earlier today, but I couldn't remember which site had the books I was looking for. This was it. I also saw this book:

    Sermons in the Times of Persecution in Scotland - Reformation Heritage Books

    I would be interested to know which sermons/preachers are in this one.

    Some years ago, the Banner of Truth Trust re-published a book by a Scottish minister and educator who died in the 1940s. The book is a good overview of Scottish Reformed history and theology. Unfortunately, I remember neither the author nor the title (I read it many years ago). I DO recall that the book consisted of his lectures at Princeton Seminary, possibly from the late 1930s. Don't let "lectures at Princeton" scare you off, though. I remember the book as being quite good.

    The above sounds like Geerhardus Vos but he was from the Netherlands.

    You might also enjoy this Jacob. John MacLeod Scottish Theology

    That's the guy I was thinking of, Randy - John MacLeod and his Scottish Theology.
