John Scott, D. D., (1638-1691) b. Wiltshire, England. "A learned divine...Succeeded Abp. Sharp in the Rectory of St.-Giles-in-the-Fields 1691. Canon of Windsor in the same year...His work on the Christian life is written with much warmth and pathos; his reasoning is strong and conclusive." - Darling, Cyclopedia Bibliographica.  Allibone dates his death at 1694.

"His sermons are valuable, especially those in the first volume...His style, on the whole, is excellent; his reasoning strong and conclusive." - Dr. Doddridge.

On The Christian Life from its Beginning to its Consummation in Glory: "One of the finest and most rational schemes of divinity that is written in our tongue, or in any other." Addison, Spectator Aug. 2, 1712. "It will teach him further and more at large both to defend the doctrines of Christianity, and to exemplify its precepts in his own life." - Bishop Barrington. "Also recommended by Bishops Tomline, Jenkinson, Lloyd, and Randolph, and by Drs. Waterland, Walton, and Owen." - Allibone.

"He was a common father to the persecuted and afflicted, a true, steadfast, and a faithful friend. His eloquent, solid, and fervent preaching commanded the applause of men, and his constancy in it procured their love." - Anthony Wood in Athen. Oxon., Bliss's ed., iv. p. 415.
