The Covenanters: A History of the Church in Scotland from 1540-1690 by J. K. Hewison has just been reprinted by Banner of Truth Trust.

It's two volumes, about 1150 pages. Originally published in 1908, with a second edition published some years later (it's this second edition that's been reprinted).

The list price is $65.00.

Banner of Truth Trust has it on sale for $52.00.

Reformation Heritage Books has it on sale at $50.00 plus free shipping.

You know what to do.

I would also recommend people checking out A Cloud of Witnesses to accompany the Hewison title. This volume contains short biographical introductions to Scottish Covenanter martyrs, along with their last speeches and testimonies. It is a powerful and moving book. Being that we just acquired Sprinkles theological inventory, we have it on sale for very cheap.

I heard that Mr Sprinkle was a Baptist. Were you able to acquire the library of Mr Immerse the Presbyterian? :p
I was a Reformed Baptist for many years. Still loved the Covenanters and took the name PuritanCovenanter as a handle call out years before I became Reformed and fully Presbyterian. ;) That was confusing for some people I must admit and I was asked about the contradiction ever so once in a while.

Great, I love the Covenanters too. My Smith forebears came from a strong Covenanting area in Scotland (North Lanarkshire), so the Covenanters is an area of serious research for me. Looking forward to getting the Hewison book.

As a NZ born Scot worshipping in a very solid Dutch Reformed church, I like to remind my Dutch friends that Scotland, not the Netherlands, is called the 'land of the covenant' :p

I guess it's pretty expensive but its a lot cheaper than old second hand sets, almost half actually! But a must have for Covenanters like myself.

I can understand the willful contradiction! I am a minister of an independent reformed baptist congregation, but have a Blue Banner sticker on my car because I find myself most at home with the Covenanters in my reading and theology!

I take it he's no longer with us?

Here is the notice of his death from Providence Baptist Church:

Pastor Lloyd Sprinkle passed away today, September 26, 2019 at 2:40pm. He was a man of conviction, courage, and compassion. He was greatly used of God as a friend, mentor, church planter, pastor, and publisher of Christian literature. He pastored Providence Baptist Church for 54 years. Lloyd was loved by all who knew him and he will be great missed. We are thankful that he has been removed from this world of sin into the eternal presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Your prayers will be greatly appreciated by his wife and family.

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." Psalm 116:15​

He was indeed an old school Southern Baptist
I guess, given he was a Southern Baptist, it may have been challenging discerning which books were confessionally Reformed and which were not.

By the way, I will be interested to hear when RHB stock that new Burrough's book "Moses Choice".

Lloyd Sprinkle was not a Southern Baptist if what is meant by that is affiliation with the SBC. I'm thankful to God for the work Mr. and Mrs. Sprinkle did in locating out-of-print volumes and republishing them at affordable prices. My introduction to R.L. Dabney and other Southern Presbyterians of the 19th Century is owed to Sprinkle Publications. What a tremendous blessing to so many.
