I am studying through some of Thomas Boston's works and came across the Marrow Controversy, written by a lay-person, Edward Fisher. It is interesting that Fisher was never ordained, especially after the effect his book, the Marrow of Modern Divinity' had on it's hearers. It seems to me that given that he was not an ordained churchman, this played a part in the rejection of his work by some of the ruling Presbytery. Does anyone have any other details or book suggestion on Edward Fisher? I'd like to hear more about him. Are you aware of any other lay-person theologians? It's interesting that the title is given them, since they are laypersons.
