Basket of Fragments, A: Notes for Revival
8 in stock
Robert Murray McCheyne lived only until his thirtieth year, and yet his preaching continues to impact generations of believers. In the years following his death, his congregation compiled a collection of his sermons from their own personal notes, so eager were they to preserve his writings.
The result is a collection of bite–size sermons characterised by Christ–centred exposition, that testifies to McCheyne’s trust in the Word of God. A Basket of Fragments overflows with wisdom stemming from a love of Scripture and a passionate desire to see people saved. Each portion of clear yet poetic teaching, when savoured, will produce lasting spiritual nourishment.
Do read these pages for the remarkable concern of a pastor for his people and for his intense awareness of eternal realities. The lost person will find the Way here, the disciple will find some fire that is easily lost, and the pastor will find a balance of tender care and uncommon courage for ministry. There are sentences in this book to chase careless and casual ideas far away – like his warning to some ‘you often told me of Christ but you did not tell me enough about my danger’ (P.171) . McCheyne tells both.
