Description

William Chalmers Burns was surrounded by revival. Not only was he used by God in Scotland, Continental Europe and North America, but he was also a pioneer missionary in China (Where he persuaded a young man called Hudson Taylor to dress in Chinese clothes). In his journals are recorded a first hand account of revival and the life of a spiritual man with an adventurous spirit - a man whose favourite books as a boy were ?The Pilgrim's Progress' and ?The Life of Sir William Wallace' (Braveheart).

Endorsements

"Burns was only twenty-four when he preached in Dundee for the saintly Robert Murray McCheyne and we know him best for that great flood of revival. However, Dr. Michael McMullen warmly presents the whole of this godly man's revival preaching and missionary zeal, with portions of his compelling journal, and letters and sermons never before published. God's Polished Arrow is about the sacrifices and massive affect of an eminently holy man."

Jim Elliff, Midwestern Center for Biblical Revival, Kansas City, Missouri

"Burns was used mightily of God in his native Scotland but turned his back on the acclaim gained from revival to respond to the passion of his life, sharing the gospel in China. Burns sacrificed material comforts, suffered illness and harassment, and labored unto death in order bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the interior of China. This unique biography by Dr. Michael McMullen, including Burns' letters, sermons and journal entries, will be an inspiration and blessing to all who read it and a model for those in the twenty-first century."

Jerry Rankin, President Emeritus of the Southern Baptist International Mission Board (IMB)
