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.
Written by Andrew Alexander Bonar, brother of Horatius Bonar, this is a moving and passionate account of Robert Murray McCheyne.

The work is also comprised of dozens of letters, sketches of sermons, and several essays previously published.
