“Born in Edinburgh, McCheyne knew the Greek alphabet by the time he was four. Following his studies at the University of Edinburgh and the Divinity Hall of the University, he served as assistant to John Bonar before ordination as minister of St. Peter’s, Dundee in 1836. It was while McCheyne was in Palestine on behalf of the Church of Scotland that the revival commenced in his parish under the preaching of William Chalmers Burns. Though the saintly McCheyne lived but a few brief years, his name will ever stand at the forefront of the list of men of revival of the nineteenth century.”– Roberts, An Annotated Bibliography of Revival Literature.

This book includes private correspondence, pastoral letters, a section on Evidence on Revivals, and hymns.
