We’re home. While away my copy of Yeaworth’s thesis on Robert Murray McCheyne arrived. This was his PhD dissertation at Edinburgh University back in 1957. Through this new initiative, you can order yourself an electronic or bound copy (in this instance I opted for the bound copy, though I’ve also downloaded a number of pdfs and am waiting on a few more to be digitised – the pdfs are free if that makes any difference). I’m not sure when, but I hope to get into this sometime in the next 12 months. This is probably the most comprehensive study of McCheyne, and the bibliography is a great resource if you are wanted to read M’Cheyne’s sermons. Lots of manuscripts in New College library that don’t seem to be in print.
Over the next week or two I hope to post some thoughts on a few books I read while we were away. More to come.
