John Brown of Haddington (1722-87), shepherd, minister, author and professor of theology, was one of the brightest evangelical lights in Scotland in the age of Moderatism. He was well-known for the liveliness of his preaching, and determined to preach 'as if I had never read a book but the Bible'. His name came to be inextricably linked with the scene of his life-long ministry in Haddington, yet his ministry also circled the Protestant world through his Self-Interpreting Bible. For this book, William Brown, his youngest son, gathered the family's memories of Brown and added these to his father's own short account of his life. While not the fullest biography of his subject, the resulting Life remains unexcelled in spiritual insight and wisdom. William Brown also included valuable additional writings by his father: selected letters, his Meditations on important Christian themes, and his Dying Advice to His Younger Children.

The Life of John Brown is the story of an orphaned shepherd boy who rose to become the revered minister of Haddington in south-east Scotland and the theological professor of his denomination. Though his life's labours were inextricably linked with one town, the influence of John Brown of Haddington spread worldwide through his writings, especially his Self-Interpreting Bible. This book contains his own account of his life. To this, his youngest son, Dr. William Brown, has added family recollections, letters and some of his father's choicest short writings. As he drew near the end of his life, John Brown exclaimed, 'Oh! What must Christ be in Himself, when He sweetens heaven, sweetens Scriptures, sweetens ordinances, sweetens earth, and sweetens even trials! Oh! What must Christ be in Himself!' Modern readers will taste some of the same Christ-derived sweetness as they meditate on The Life of John Brown with Select Writings.
