Among the many inﬂuential preachers and writers of the Evangelical Revival in the Church of England in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century was Thomas Scott (1747-1821). The most widely read of all his publications was his 1779 Force of Truth which went through 12 editions in his lifetime. This thesis presents a diplomatic edition of that work, based on the 1821 Edinburgh imprint and includes the major textual variants from the ﬁrst 1779 London edition, with an introduction and annotations.
