Finlay Macdonald


After a brief history by way of background, Finlay Macdonald invites us to view current issues in the Church of Scotland in the context of, and in continuity with, issues from its past. He argues that structures and institutions manifest a continuity of principle or tradition which is evidenced in the recurrence of certain key issues, the church-state relation for example. He also offers a finely-crafted discussion on issues of contemporary significance for the Church and the relation of these to the still discernible principles which underlie them.
