‘This is that rare type of biography in which the subject is allowed to speak for himself in his own way and M’Cheyne’s oft-quoted prayer: “Lord, make me as holy as a pardoned sinner can be made” casts its hallowed breath over every page.’ — R. A. FINLAYSON

‘This is one of the best and most profitable volumes ever published. The memoir of such a man ought surely to be in the hands of every Christian and certainly every preacher of the Gospel.’ — C.H. SPURGEON

‘Robert Murray M’Cheyne’s biography written by his friend Andrew Bonar is one of my most treasured possessions and has been a companion throughout almost all of my Christian life. M’Cheyne died when he was twenty nine, but his life story has been for me personally a model of grace, and his ministry pattern a model for service. It is a book every young Christian man should read—more than once.’ — SINCLAIR B. FERGUSON

‘In living and dying in the morning of life, M’Cheyne kissed the Rose and felt the thorn. His supreme joy was to know Christ. He lived in fellowship with Jesus through the word and prayer. And the thorn of his suffering intensified and purified that fellowship so that we are still being inspired by it 168 years later.’ — JOHN PIPER
