A contemporary devotional biography
David Robertson, author of 'The Dawkins Letters' and 'Magnificent Obsession', is a well-known pastor and apologist who is passionate about engaging culture with the message of Christ.
"Having used Robert Murray McCheyne's 1842 Bible Reading Calendar for many years, and having admired his hunger for holiness, I am very glad that David Robertson has written this new biography."-- John Stott
"The freshest presentation of McCheyne available"-- Ligon Duncan
"...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."-- Eric Alexander
"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."-- Christian Marketplace
