The Lost Sermons of Scottish Baptist, Peter Grant: The Highland Herald

From the introduction by Donald E. Meek: "Peter Grant is best known to Highlanders and Islanders as the composer of many Gaelic hymns of evangelical experience which have remained popular to the present day. To countless generations, he has been acknowledged in Gaelic as Pàdraig Grannd nan Oran ("Peter Grant of the Songs")-the composer of songs of spiritual vitality and magnetic attraction...Peter Grant, the poet, is ...well known, but Peter Grant, the preacher, is a relatively obscure figure, although his skills as an expositor have been remembered in Gaelic tradition, and his ability as a descriptive writer in English can be gauged from his reports to the Baptist Home Missionary Society. So far, however, we have not been privileged to sample the preaching style that proclaimed the Word of God, in both Gaelic and English, in the pulpit of Grantown-on-Spey, and drew audiences from miles around. In this book, we are given a splendid opportunity to experience something of Peter Grant, the preacher, by means of his surviving sermons in English."
