George Whitefield’s ministry in Scotland

Many might think of George Whitefield’s connections with Scotland in terms of his part in the Cambuslang Revival (1742) and sad dispute with Ralph and Ebenezer Erskine of the Associate Presbytery.

Why Johnny Can’t Preach

In some senses, this book could be regarded as a potential ‘last will and testament’ of its author, who, at the time of writing, was undergoing treatment for cancer with only a 25 per cent likelihood of success.

Chains of Grace: Peter Jeffery’s Story

I believe Peter Jeffery’s book will be a blessing not only to those who know him, but also to ministers beginning their training or ministry, and even to future ministers not yet born.

Lloyd-Jones: Messenger of Grace

Everything from the pen of Iain Murray is worthy of attention, but this book on the ministry of Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones is particularly timely. To those of us who knew him, it does not seem almost thirty years since he was taken from us. But for anyone under fifty this book will prove a…
