About the Author
Thomas Guthrie (1803-1873) was a preacher, social reformer, and philanthropist. He was born in Brechin, studied in Edinburgh and Paris, and was licensed as a minister with the Church of Scotland. He served as a minister in Greyfriars, Edinburgh from 1837 until 1840. It was during this time that Guthrie became aware of the poverty, deprivation, and ignorance riddling the area surrounding his parish. He quickly became an advocate of free, compulsory education for all children and worked to promote temperance.

In 1843, Guthrie left the Church of Scotland to help establish the Free Church with Thomas Chalmers and Robert Candlish. Active in the leadership of the Free Church, he campaigned against those who would refuse Free Churches land, and he raised funds to assist Free Church clergy, who were kicked out of their homes following the Disruption. Guthrie wrote a handful of books over the course of his lifetime, including: The City: Its Sins and Sorrows, A Plea for Drunkards, The Gospel in Ezekiel, and Plea for Ragged Schools.
