Henry Scougal (1650-1678) Professor of Divinity in King's college, Aberdeen. "Scougal belonged to the school of Leighton in stressing personal holiness as well as theological learning. He died at the age of twenty-eight... Scougal produced several minor writings, mainly sermons, but above all The Life of God in the Soul of Man (L. 1677). This became a classic of Christian devotional literature, valued by Presbyterians as well as Episcopalians. In part one, Scougal defines true religion as `a union of the soul with God' and `a divine life'... Part two sets forth `the excellency and advantages' of true religion, and part three `the difficulties and duties of the Christian life.' ...John Wesley gave a copy of the book to his friend George Whitefield, who later wrote in his journal that `he never knew what true religion was' until he read `that excellent treatise'. Whitefield learned that it did not consist in good works but was `union of the soul with God, and Christ formed in us'. He wrote: `A ray of Divine light was instantaneously darted in upon my soul, and from that moment, but not till then, did I know that I must be a new creature.'"--D.B. Calhoun in Dict. Scottish Church Hist. & Theol., pp762-3.
