"A man hardly needs anything beyond Candlish. He is devout, candid, prudent and forcible"



Robert Smith Candlish was one of Scotland's most gifted preachers, having the gifts of eloquence, careful research and enlivening literature,as well as being mostly loved by all who knew him as minister - and opposed by some whose little minds could not comprehend the length and breadth and height of his learning.
His mother being a Smith, I claim ancestry, my maternal grandmother being also a Scottish Smith, and this is my tribute to Robert, and all the devout Scottish men who gave their lives (sometimes prematurely) in the service of our Lord.
