Born into a noble Scottish family in the sixteenth century, Robert Bruce turned his back on earthly prestige and wealth to enter the ministry. He was Minister of Edinburgh for twelve years, preaching to the King and the court. These sermons on Hebrews 11 show a truly remarkable example of post–reformation preaching, heard in the Great Kirk of St Giles, in the heart of Scotland’s capital. David Searle has undertaken the huge task of putting these sermons into the English alphabet, translating them from the Braid Scots, so they can edify the church today.

… allows the force of Bruce’s theology, whose training in rhetoric and scholastic organisation of material allows for a prose that is compelling as it is nourishing, to come right through. … a detailed Reformed treatment of a seminal biblical text brought to light.

Mark Elliot, Professor of Historical and Biblical Theology, University of St Andrews, Scotland

Robert Bruce, therefore, was no abstract theologian. He knew the pastoral and missional context of his people and is not afraid to apply the Word of God to their real and felt needs. What is even more striking is how relevant his applications are to us in the 21st century.

Trevor W. J. Morrow, Minister Emeritus, Lucan Presbyterian Church, Ireland
