The Journal of Bonar and McCheyne's Mission of Inquiry, 1839. This epic chronicle has a fascination that stems from the attention to detail both men had for what they saw. It is part travel book, adventure story and social history. This is an absorbing story of the scattered Jewish people of the mid 19th century and the problems of travel in politically unstable situations. As a result of this journey the first Church of Scotland missionary to the Jews was sent to Hungary in 1841.

Robert Murray McCheyne (1813 - 1843), has had a tremendous impact not only on the people of his generation but through his writings ever since. He died in his thirtieth year and in the seventh year of ministry while he was the pastor of St Peter's Free Church. His epitaph describes him as a man who 'was honoured by his Lord to draw many wanderers out of darkness into the path of life'.
Andrew Alexander Bonar, was a minister of the Free Church of Scotland--Collace, Perthshire, 1838-1856 ; Finnieston Free Church, Glasgow, 1856-1892. He was identified with evangelical and revival movements and adhered to the doctrine of premillennialism. With Robert Murray McCheyne he visited Palestine in 1839 to inquire into the condition of the Jews there. During the visit of Dwight L. Moody to Britain in 1874 and 1875, Moody was warmly welcomed by Bonar, despite the latter receiving considerable criticism from other Calvinist ministers in the Free Church.
Selected published writings of Bonar include A Narrative of a Mission of Inquiry to the Jews from the Church of Scotland in 1839, Memoir and Remains of Robert Murray McCheyne, Commentary on Leviticus, Christ and his Church in the Book of Psalms and Redemption Drawing Nigh, a defence of the premillennial advent. Bonar also edited Samuel Rutherford's Letters (1863); and wrote many tracts, pamphlets, and minor biographies.
