Andrew Gray – Lady Stair’s Close, Edinburgh – SFH028

Andrew Gray – Lady Stair’s Close, Edinburgh – SFH028

David Woollin of Reformation Heritage Books joins Matthew Vogan outside what is now The Writer’s Museum in Edinburgh.  However, the initials carved in stone on the 17th century marriage lintel above the door confirm that this was once the childhood home of a remarkable young Scottish preacher called Andrew Gray.   RHB have published a new book with twelve rare sermons preached by Andrew Gray.

“There is no substitute for reading Gray himself. He will warm your soul, convict you of slothfulness and urge you to godliness. He is always full of spirit and life.  His sermons make doctrine intelligible and practical. They powerfully speak to the mind and the conscience, comforting the regenerate and inviting the unsaved. Above all, they seek to win souls to Christ.”

Dr. Joel Beeke.

John Hunter’s Grave, Tweedsmuir – SFH027

John Hunter’s Grave, Tweedsmuir – SFH027

Picking up from the earlier episode at the Devil’s Beef Tub, Matthew Vogan and Jimmy Fisher are in Tweedsmuir to tell the rest of the story of what happened to John Hunter.

“When Zion’s King was robbed of His right,

His witnesses in Scotland put to flight,

When Popish prelates and indulgency

Combined against Christ to ruin Presbytery,

All who would not unto their idols bow

They sought them out and whom they found they slew.

‘For owning of Christ’s cause I then did die.

My blood for veangeance on His en’mies did cry.’

Archibald Campbell, the Marquess of Argyll, was one of the most significant political figures amongst the Convenanters.  His steadfast and uncompromising nature was more than evident when he came face to face with ‘The Maiden.’  Matthew Vogan met up with that very same Maiden during a visit to the National Museum in Edinburgh.
