Thomas Erskine (1788-1870) influential Scottish lay theological writer, "his adult connections were mainly with Scottish Congregationalism and the Church of Scotland... A time of doubt...impelled him to study the evidences of Christianity, from which ultimately emerged his first book, Remarks on the Internal Evidence for the Truth of Revealed Religion in which he argued that Christianity's truth was demonstrated by its correspondence with man's moral and spiritual needs. It was well received by the orthodox world, although it theology was that of a moderate moral government Calvinist... Erskine had a wide influence, both through his early writings (nothing more was published in his lifetime after 1837), and through his circle of friends, which included F.D. Maurice, Benj. Jowett, Dean Stanley... In these ways Erskine contributed significantly to the liberalizing of nineteenth-century British theology."--N.R. Needham in Dict. Scottish Church Hist & Theol. (17660)
