Praise for the Print Edition

He was known throughout Scotland for his piety and learning, his retired and studious habits, and his earnest desire to throw such a light on the sacred volume as should make all ordinary readers feel it to be an instructive and blessed book. It may, indeed, be said of his literary and biblical labors, as was said of his Divine Master's preaching, 'the common people heard him gladly.'

John Brown of Haddington

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Robert Mackenzie's biography of John Brown tells the inspiring story of how an orphaned shepherd boy became the celebrated teacher and preacher of the Bible we know today. After the death of his parents, Brown worked as a sheep herder to support himself. Converting to Christianity, Brown taught himself to read Greek (this process is a fascinating story in itself), and walked twenty-four miles to buy his first Greek New Testament. In the bookshop, a professor laid out a challenge to the poorly looking shepherd boy: if he could read from the Greek New Testament, the professor would buy it for him. Brown left the shop with his free Greek Bible, and never looked back. In stirring prose, Mackenzie tells the rest of Brown's unlikely rise to one of his country's most popular preachers—and one of Christianity's best apologists.

There are few stories more thrilling than the simple narrative of John Brown of Haddington, as he came to be called. The facts are all given in the fascinating biography by Robert Mackenzie, published in 1918.

About John Brown

John Brown (1722–1787) was born at Carpow in the parish of Abernethy, in Pershire Scotland. Around the age of twelve, his parents died and Brown supported himself as a shepherd. After teaching himself Latin, Hebrew, and Greek, Brown would work as a schoolmaster, briefly as a volunteer soldier, and eventually would become a student of divinity in the Secession Church. He was ordained as a minister at Haddington, East Lothain, in 1751, where he remained for the rest of his life. While continuing his duties as a minister, Brown also took the position of Professor of Divinity and began to publish works to great acclaim. Brown had six children, four of whom became ministers, and one that became the provost of Haddington.
