"I enthusiastically commend Martin's works--not only for their immediate value, but because they have the capacity to challenge readers to think much of Christ as they read the Scriptures.
- Sinclair B. Ferguson

Hugh Martin (1821-1885) Was one of the young men training for the ministry of the Church of Scotland who, in 1843, cast in their lot with the Free Church of Scotland. In 1844 he became the first Free Church minister of Panbride where he remained for 14 years, and where his son, Alexander (the future Principal of New College) was born in 1857. In 1858 Hugh Martin became minister of Greyfriars Free Church, Edinburgh. Owing to ill-health, he retired from the pastorate in 1863, but followed an itinerant ministry, at home and abroad, until within a short time of his death. At a time when the Calvinism of the Reformed Church in Scotland was discarded in favour of rationalistic Modernism, he edited The British and Foreign Evangelical Review, and The Watchword, thereby rendering invaluable service to Reformed evangelicalism. But he was a preacher by predilection, and a controversialist by constraint of circumstances.

"I enthusiastically commend Martin's works--not only for their immediate value, but because they have the capacity to challenge readers to think much of Christ as they read the Scriptures.

"We live in a time when long, thoughtful, and loving meditation on Christ seems to be rare. The dominant tendency is to read the Bible to find out about ourselves rather than about Christ - to explore even the Gospels to find where we can "find ourselves" in the Gospel story ("are you like Joseph, Nicodemus, or perhaps the blind man?"). That has a place - but it is subordinate to finding Christ in the Gospel story and fixing our eyes upon him. After all, Jesus IS the Gospel story!

"'Martin on the Atonement' as this work has often been simply known, is therefore a work to 'read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest.' It will re-focus you on Christ; it will make you think long and hard, because it is probably different from any book on the work of Christ you have ever read. In the process of reading it will do you much good, and stimulate you to harder, more devoted, more biblically-rooted, reflection on the glory of the Savior."
- Sinclair B. Ferguson, Distinguished Visiting Professor of Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary; Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia South Carolina

"Martin's work is unsurpassed as a synthesis of orthodoxy and originality. It sets forth the same doctrine as Hodge, yet the atmosphere is completely different. It scintillates and sores and sets standards of brilliance all its own."
-Donald Macleod, from the Introduction
