Title
Faith Under Fire: Canada's Extraordinary Chaplain of the Great War
Abstract
The Montreal-born Frederick Scott (1861-1944), author of thirteen books of Christian and patriotic poetry that earned him the title of "Poet of the Laurentians", was almost 55 years old and the pastor of St. Matthew's Anglican Church in Quebec City when he volunteered to go overseas to serve as senior chaplain with the 1st Canadian Infantry Division during the First World War. Through a series of unpublished letters in Montreal's McCord Museum, the author tells the story of a man revered by the Canadian military for his remarkable ministry. Scott's letters home from the front reveals how he discovered first-hand what fear really is, how to conquer it and how to inspire others. Frederick Scott was the father of poet and McGill University law professor F.R. Scott.
