About "The Seven Churches of Asia"
From one of Scotland's greatest preachers, Robert Murray McCheyne, we have this fascinating collection of sermons that were preached during a period of great revival in Scotland. With seven sermons, one on each of the churches in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea, we are offered valuable insights into the distinctives of these early church situations. They give the reader some idea of McCheyne's great burden to see men and women coming to know Christ for themselves. Dr Baxter wrote of McCheyne 'the chief thing about him was the unction from the Holy Spririt ... at times he was awakening ... at other times he was melting and moving as he dwelt on the great theme of redeeming love.' 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.'
