'Of the highest order of merit. The author does not strain the text, but gives its real meaning. His remarks are always weighty, spiritual, and suggestive; we only wish there were more of them. He has cultivated brevity.' — CH Spurgeon
Andrew Bonar (1810-1892) was a Scottish preacher and author. He was a great friend of R.M. M'Cheyne, whose memoir he wrote. After short ministries in Jedburgh and Edinburgh, he was ordained at Collace, Perthshire, and remained there after the disruption, preaching in a tent until a free church was built. In 1856 he started a new free church at Finnieston, Glasgow, exercising a fine ministry until his death.
