Robert Flint's Social Theology put into Practice

(p.43) 3 The Church and Housing
The Kirk and the Kingdom

Three Glasgow ministers, John Marshall Lang, Donald Macleod and Frederick Lockhart Robertson, who were greatly influenced by Flint initially persuaded the Church of Scotland's Presbytery of Glasgow to undertake an examination of housing conditions. While the work of Lang and Macleod has been well examined, the work of Robertson has been almost completely ignored. His critical work in having the Presbytery's Housing Commission set up, and, even more importantly his role in chairing it and then promoting its aim of establishing a Housing Fund in the city is outlined. The contribution of the United Free Church of Scotland to the Royal Commission on Housing is also analysed.

Keywords:   Glasgow Presbytery, Housing Commission, Frederick Lockhart Robnertson
