Baillie was one of the Scottish delegates to the Westminster Assembly and these volumes cover the period from 1637 to 1662 -- some of the most momentous days in the history of the Reformed faith. These letters contain an intimate insider's look at these days of international religious drama, national covenants, and the writing of the greatest religious Confession ever given to men, the Westminster Confession of Faith. A major source for 17th century Church history and a totally unique compilation -- peering into the very heart of Reformation! Cunningham is cited by Johnston regarding this work, "His Letters and Journals furnish us with some pictures, as lifelike as photographs, of the principal actors then on the stage of affairs, and not unfrequently gives us a peep of what was passing behind the scenes. It is the book of all others to be read by those who would understand the period of the Covenant." About 1700 pages.
