Born in Rothesay, Scotland, in 1868, Hugh Black graduated from Glasgow University in 1887. He spent his life in the service of God's people and gained fame as a pastor in Scotland and as a lecturer on homiletics in the United States. Even during his later service as a professor of theology, his pastoral vision remained warmly practical. Although he was not a Catholic, the common touch and engaging insights of his classic book The Art of Being a Good Friend shine forth for the benefit of Catholics and non-Catholics alike. He also wrote more than a dozen other books, including works on youth, work, and culture.
