John Cowan (1778?-1817)

James Dodson

Nothing seems to be known about John Cowan's birth and early life. It seems most probable that he studied theology under John M'Millan III., who was the instructor for the Reformed Presbytery around the time of his presentation for the ministry. He appears in the records of the Reformed Presbytery first as a candidate for licensure. He was licensed at Douglas on 9th of March, 1803, and was eligible to receive calls. His competence may be seen in the fact that by 1804, he had received two calls--one to the congregation at Chirnside; the other to the congregation at Stranraer. At a meeting, on August 15, 1804, he chose the latter and was duly ordained there, November 21 of that year. From that time, his presence in the presbytery was regular and he was chosen moderator of the Reformed Presbytery in 1805/6....

Creeds and Confessions Defended,

James Dodson

1810-John Paul (1777-1848).-A muscular defense of creeds and confessions and many other points of Presbyterian and Covenanter doctrine with it. Paul does not spare his opponent on any front.

A Discourse on Women Prophesying and Headcoverings.

James Dodson

1665-Joseph Mede (1586-1639).-An interesting discourse on 1 Cor. 11:5 explaining what Paul meant when he spoke of women prophesying.  In the course of the discussion, he throws some light on the function of precentors and the antiphony between the preceptor and the congregation (much like lining of the Psalms). Pointedly, he also discusses what Paul meant to teach respecting headcoverings or veils for women in the worship of the church.

A Brief Catechetical Exposition of Christian Doctrine.

James Dodson

1632-William Twisse.-A treatise containing four catechism. The first designed to explain and distinguish the sacraments; the second treats the Lord's prayer; the third expounds the Ten Commandments; and the fourth unfolds the articles of the Apostles' Creed. This is a good example of many early Reformed catechisms written specifically for helping communicants prepare for a right reception of the Lord's supper.
