Alongside his devotion to God and the dedication he demonstrated as a pastor, Robert Murray McCheyne also had a passion for words. In the first 2 of this 4-volume set, the reader is afforded extensive insight into this evangelist wordsmith’s memoir and private letters, sermons, lectures, poetry, and more.
A man of great conviction and courage, McCheyne often battled illness during his short, 29 year life span. Despite his health, he was still able to travel to Palestine on a Missionary trip at the behest of the Church of Scotland. A year after he returned, he penned (along with close friend Andrew Alexander Bonar) a grand account of their adventure, Narrative of a Mission of Inquiry to the Jews from the Church of Scotland in 1839, which is the 3rd volume in this extraordinary set.
In the first section of Volume 1, the reader is treated to the memoir of Robert Murray McCheyne. A short life was McCheyne’s, but a powerful one filled with the Holy Spirit and adventure. Following McCheyne’s memoir are the personal letters to fellow clergy men and family which are often quoted for their eloquence and demonstration of deep faith. McCheyne’s published lectures and a selection of his most popular sermons is contained within as well.
