Summary

In the mid-18th century, the Church of Scotland faced some considerable upheaval. The Church’s General Assembly, despite opposition from a great number of its congregations, ratified a significant shift in the Church’s policies for electing and placing ministers. As a result, some of the dissenting congregations chose to secede from the Church of Scotland, forming the United Secession Church in 1733. A decade later, John Willison, as well as merely documenting the event, wrote A Fair and Impartial Testimony as a call for the dissenting congregations to make peace and return to the Church of Scotland.
