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.

Praise for the Print Edition
His brief ministry of seven-and-a-half years 'stamped an indelible impress on Scotland,' and though he died in his twenty-ninth year, more was wrought by him that will last for eternity than most accomplish in a lifetime.
The memoirs have an excellent section on his thoughts on personal prayer and holiness. The sermons are meaty and Spirit inspired. His letters open up the heart of a man branded for the Lord Jesus, who is full of faith, hope, and love. Frankly, they should issue this book to every man entering seminary.
