In a day when evangelicalism is swamped by pragmatic programs and plagued by the cult of celebrity, this book is a fresh reminder of what has been evangelicalism’s strength and glory in the past: holy persons like M‘Cheyne. Highly recommended!” — Michael A. G. Haykin, professor of church history and biblical spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville
