The life and ministry of a young man who lived in the presence of God, and brought an overwhelming sense of that presence to men.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.
Few books have been better loved than the Memoir and Remains of Robert Murray M'Cheyne. Its circulation underlines this. First published in 1844, within twenty-five years it went through one hundred and sixteen English editions. In 1910 it was estimated that, including translations into other languages, not less than half a million copies were in circulation. Few books have had such a widespread influence on the lives of God's people. Testimonies to its usefulness were received from many lands and Christians of differing theological persuasions have testified to the blessing experiences through reading it. 'This is one of the best and most profitable volumes ever published', said C.H. Spurgeon. 'The memoir of such a man ought surely to be in the hands of every Christian and certainly every preacher of the Gospel.' Few books contain such variety and welath of spiritual matter between their covers.
