Robert Murray M’Cheyne was a 19th century preacher who is known not only for his powerful preaching, but for his personal holiness. Jordan Stone examines the force behind this holiness – his love for and communion with Christ. M’Cheyne prayed for, preached for and pursued holiness because he understood it to be the mature expression of love to Christ. Let us allow his unrelenting passion for piety convict our contemporary complacency and help us learn how to abide in the love of Christ.
Jordan Stone (Ph.D. The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) is the senior pastor of Redeemer PCA in McKinney, TX, and lecturer in practical theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, Dallas. He is married to Emily, and they are the proud parents of six children.
… there is danger in picking up this book. You will not only be inspired, you will be challenged. Christ’s beauty and preciousness shined throughout M’Cheyne’s life and ministry, as evidenced on every page of this book.
Senior Pastor, University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan
A Holy Minister features the vibrant spirituality and pastoral fervor of Robert Murray M’Cheyne. Stone has carefully studied and now winsomely presents this great example to ministers today. Let us pray for a generation of pastors who treasure Christ the way we see modelled in this work.

… far more valuable is the care taken to show how M’Cheyne’s personal piety, preaching, and pastoral ministry flowed from his deep love for the Lord Jesus Christ – the very love I want every seminarian to cultivate and cherish.

Associate Professor of Practical Theology and Dean of Students, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi
The piety of M’Cheyne, pulsing with love to Christ, is his great legacy, and Stone helps us to understand it in M’Cheyne and to long for it in ourselves. It is not to make much of M’Cheyne that we should read this book, but to learn from M’Cheyne how a revived ministry will ordinarily be the instrument of a revived church.
