Whitney Hobson Craig grew up learning about the Scottish Presbyterian tradition while she attended Emerald Mountain Christian School in Alabama, a school that specialized in understanding the lessons of Christian history toward living the Biblical faith. A life-long reader, Whitney gravitates toward biographies and seeks to understand people’s place in history. She graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Journalism and Political Science.
Whitney currently resides in South Bend, IN, with her husband and son. She works as a communications specialist with a local non-profit dedicated to providing choice and possibility to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In her spare time, Whitney enjoys cooking, CrossFit and leading a small group for her church.
We love our popular heroes—tough, strong, adventuring fellows, with lives full of daring exploits. The obscure Scottish Covenanter John Brown of Priesthill is a hero of a different kind. Like the early Christian martyrs of the Roman Empire who would rather suffer and die than deny their God, John Brown stood firmly for the life and liberty found only in the Lord Jesus Christ.
