Publisher's Description

"Was McCheyne for real?"; "Was he just famous because he died so young?"; "Does he have anything to teach us today?"
In this book, David Robertson, the present-day minister of McCheyne's church, St Peter's in Dundee, Scotland, seeks to answer these and other questions. Through the use of published sermons, private papers and historical material, this contemporary devotional biography traces McCheyne's life and influence from his upbringing, conversion and training for the ministry to the revival that occurred in St. Peter's in 1839 and his early death. The contemporary relevance of McCheyne for today's church is demonstrated and the glory of God is seen in this wonderful story of what He can do with one 'consecrated sinner'.

Editorial Reviews

"Recommended for anyone who wants to know how youthful enthusiasm grounded in the Bible and faith can overcome in the most adverse circumstances, and how conservatism and prejudices can then destroy what God has created. Powerful lessons for us all in fact."

"...a fine and fresh account of a great and godly minister of the gospel. David Robertson gives us new insight into McCheyne's personal life, and his preparation for preaching, his deep social concern and his absolute devotion to the glory of God as the ultimate motive of everything he did."
