Abstract

This biography tells the life and history of Alexander Peden, a renegade Presbyterian minister after the Restoration. The author focuses specifically on the many instances where Peden was reported to made a prediction or prophecy of upcoming events that then came true. The source for many of these stories apparently came from first-hand and second-hand accounts from individuals who had witnessed these events and were later interviewed by the author.
