The Reformed Presbyterian Churches, lineal descendants of the Scottish Covenanters, have never been numerous in number or often noticed by academics. Dr Tim Donachie has worked to correct the latter by writing of the Reformed Presbyterian Churches in Ireland, focusing on the nineteenth century. He expertly describes the difficulties and the reactions, almost compromises, which some members made with the state and society around them, while the clergy remained more steadfast. Here is an interesting and important study that breaks new ground in the ecclesiastical history of Ireland in the critical century before Partition.
