Robert Murray McCheyne – Life is an Adventure

Irene Howat

This book is written for children aged nine to fourteen. Though concise, it covers McCheyne’s life at a fast pace. We learn about his childhood, his conversion and his constant striving to do the Lord’s work even in poor health. We also learn about his mission to bring Jewish people to Christ and his contribution to the foundation of the Free Church in Scotland – all in 29 short years!
There are three helpful sections after the story: Thinking Further Topics; Timeline; and a Life Summary. Thinking Further Topics raises questions from each chapter and contains pointers for applying the Lord’s Word to our lives. These are expressed in simple language that is relevant to children with Bible passages supporting the points made.

While aimed at children, this is a handy quick read for adults. The Thinking Further Topics will encourage adults to review their lives too!
