No. 5150 in Roberts, Revival Literature: An Annotated Bibliography. An account of his missionary work in the Eastern Bloc following WWII.

James Alexander Stewart (1910-1975), b. Glasgow, Scotland; d. Asheville, NC. Steward was an evangelist on the borders of Scotland, founding the Border Movement in 1928. During the 1930's he promoted revival work in Latvia, Poland, Estonia, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and elsewhere in Europe. During WWII the evangelistic base was moved to Buffalo, NY, and in 1945 Stewart bought a home in Asheville, NC, which was to serve as his base of operations for the rest of his life. He continued evangelistic work and radio preaching throughout Europe, wrote more than fifty books and pamphlets, and wrote biographies of William Chalmers Burns, Robert Murray M'Cheyne, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, and Basil Malof.
