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.'
—The North British Review
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.
