Publisher's Description

Robert Murray McCheyne lived only until his thirtieth year, and yet his preaching continues to impact generations of believers. In the years following his death, his congregation compiled a collection of his sermons from their own personal notes, so eager were they to preserve his writings.

The result is a collection of bite–size sermons characterised by Christ–centred exposition, that testifies to McCheyne’s trust in the Word of God. A Basket of Fragments overflows with wisdom stemming from a love of Scripture and a passionate desire to see people saved. Each portion of clear yet poetic teaching, when savoured, will produce lasting spiritual nourishment.

Author Bio

Robert Murray McCheyne (1813 – 1843) has had a tremendous impact not only on the people of his generation but through his writings ever since. He died in his thirtieth year and in the seventh year of ministry while he was the pastor of St Peter’s Free Church. His epitaph describes him as a man who ‘was honoured by his Lord to draw many wanderers out of darkness into the path of life’.

Editorial Reviews

Do read these pages for the remarkable concern of a pastor for his people and for his intense awareness of eternal realities. The lost person will find the Way here, the disciple will find some fire that is easily lost, and the pastor will find a balance of tender care and uncommon courage for ministry. There are sentences in this book to chase careless and casual ideas far away – like his warning to some ‘you often told me of Christ but you did not tell me enough about my danger’ (P.165) . McCheyne tells both.


… a banquet of gospel truth. … McCheyne masterfully presents unseen and eternal realities as vividly plain and vitally present. … The Scottish “Ah!” punctuates throughout (some 437 times!) as a token of McCheyne’s own wonder, joy, and gratitude in the gospel, as well as his heartfelt pleading for his hearers to be saved and to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ.


This book was one of my favourites, and some of the sermons are quite outstanding. Read and see for yourself what the transforming grace of God can work in the life of a young man.


Since my childhood, Robert Murray McCheyne has been a family hero, as he has been throughout Scotland and in many parts of the world. A Basket of Fragments is one of the first books published by Christian Focus, over forty years ago. It is a treasure.

Read and you will see why. Here is heart–warming Gospel clarity with the passion of a loving heart. Saints comforted, sinners warned, Christ glorified and the cross of Christ central. Experience the record of holy unction, fervour, wisdom and love. As you read this, you will understand why my grandfather (whom I never met) cherished three books: The Bible, Pilgrim’s Progress and A Basket of Fragments.

I believe you will cherish this book also.


A sense of the nearness of eternity pervades McCheyne’s sermons, as he proclaims the joys of heaven and the terrors of hell. This is a model of truly biblical preaching – priceless truth delivered by a man on fire for God.
