James Aitken Wylie (1808-1890) was a Scottish historian of religion and a Presbyterian minister. He was a prolific writer and is most famous for writing "The History of Protestantism". He lived as a Christian ought to live. Just after his death, it was said of him, "James Wylie was one of the best informed, most genial, and sympathetic of men, and his deep, unaffected humility was one of his greatest charms. It has been said that you could not be long with him without perceiving in him a lover of Christ and of all good men, and his unostentatious piety gave an unmistakable savour to all his life." --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
