The inspirational story of Alexander Peden, known as 'Peden the Prophet', Minister of the Covenanters, is given dramatic life in this heroic novel of seventeenth century Scotland. The author's meticulous attention to historical detail provides a fitting backdrop to this unique account of a vital period in Scotland's political and religious development. Who were the Covenanters? Why is their story important to us today? Robert Watson sets the scene for answers to these questions in a fictional but historically accurate story. From Greyfriars' Kirk, Edinburgh, through South Western Scotland and North Eastern Ireland, the reader witnesses the everyday encounters of a man driven by a mission - Peden the Prophet. Robert Watson M.A., B.D., taught classics and history in the Glasgow area for many years. His second degree in theology was obtained from Trinity College at the University of Glasgow. A post as Historical Researcher on Old Glasgow in the area gave him an invaluable opportunity to begin the detailed research required to investigate the background for this novel.
