John Gordon of Pitburg and Parkhill; or, Memorials of a Standard-bearer

Author: His Widow
Publisher: Nisbet and Co.
Publish Date: 1886

The life of a noble hearted Scottish laird, an uncompromising Christian, a man who always and everywhere stood up for Jesus. His fresh, unconventional way of working for Christ, his unremitting concern for the salvation of the servants of his estate, his wide-reaching connection with evangelistic work, are admirably told by his widow, a daughter of Sir David Brewster.  John Gordon was a distant kinsman of Gordon of Khartoum, and was not unlike him in fearless independence of character and devotion to the Lord.
