Bible Reading

This page focusing on Bible reading has been set up as one means to help our congregation read through the same daily portions of the Bible together. The Bible reading schedule available through the links below was first prepared by Robert Murray M’Cheyne (1813-1843). M’Cheyne was a young preacher in Dundee, Scotland. He first served as an assistant pastor to John Bonar, the father of Andrew and Horatius. Of frail constitution, M’Cheyne never was physically strong, and his frequent sickness often forced his absence from his pulpit. However, his reputation for godliness and his fervent preaching not only had an impact on his congregation, but on many of his ministerial colleagues. He pastored in Dundee for nearly five and half years, and his responsive congregation grew to more than 1100 hearers. From April – December of 1839, M’Cheyne represented the Church of Scotland on a mission trip to Palestine, collecting information regarding the Jews and potential missionary activity in Palestine. God sent revival to M’Cheyne’s church and throughout Scotland, and M’Cheyne himself enjoyed the sustained working of God throughout the duration of his ministry until his death just two months before his 30th birthday.
