Publisher's Commentary: Fourteen years after Lord Kenmure's death, Rutherford published this little tract in an apparent attempt to rouse the nobility of Scotland to defend the Covenant against continued incursions by the Crown. This is interesting in itself, being published the same year that Charles I is executed. However, of even greater interest is the blow-by-blow account of the battle for Kenmure's soul on his deathbed, useful as a contrast with Arminian easy-believism.
