Sad Departure, A: why we could not stay in the Church of Scotland
1 in stock
If you care at all about the Christian church you must brace yourself for a roller coaster of emotions as you read A Sad Departure. The title contains a double entendre. On the one hand it alludes to the departure from the Church of Scotland of about forty ministers and many members. On the other hand it refers to the catalyst of these actions - the departure of the Kirk from its moorings in the authority of Scripture by its decisions on 'the gay question'.
This is a thoughtful, honest and solemnising book written out of a deep personal and pastoral concern for the cause of the gospel.
- From the Foreword by Sinclair B. Ferguson
"David Randall has written a lucid manifesto explaining why he and others are leaving the Church of Scotland now. While that may seem a narrow issue of no concern to believers in the rest of the world, it is certainly not. The arguments he proffers for departure from this historic church stand equally true and compelling for any believer or pastor in any denomination which has officially allowed a departure from the Word of God."?
