Isaac Ambrose was born in 1604, the son of Richard Ambrose, vicar of Ormskirk, Lancashire.

    The book was actually prduecod by a committee formed of ministers and ruling elders of the Reformed Presbyterian (both Synod and General Synod) and United Presbyterian (the old UPCNA) congregations in Philadelphia. Also, while there were a number of recommendations given by Scottish ministers, the three new prefaces were written by John Edgar and Henry Cooke of the Presbyterian Church of Ireland, and Thomas Houston of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Ireland.
