James Philip was one of the key figures in Scottish Evangelical life in the second half of the twentieth century. His preaching, first in the north-east fishing village of Gardenstown, and then for forty years in the University City of Edinburgh, touched countless lives - from fishermen to students, schoolchildren to nurses, young professionals to senior citizens. Many were called to overseas mission and even more to church ministry. James Philip's single-minded commitment to preaching and prayer became a model for a whole generation of evangelical pastors. This book draws together eyewitness accounts and first-hand testimony to pay tribute to a minister of the Word of God of remarkable passion and power.

"James Philip maintained a faithful, unfashionable, whole bible, whole counsel of God preaching pastorate, evangelical and reformed, humane and mature, full of grace and of God, igniting both heads and hearts in the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ. This book is a fine tribute to a great ministry, the impact of which , please God, will long continue."

J. I. Packer, (1926–2020), Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada

‘The editors are to be congratulated on having assembled such a sparkling array of contributors... James Philip stands before us pre-eminently as a preacher of the Word of God, rigorously expounded and searchingly applied.'
