Robert Bruce was one of the most influential and spiritual ministers of the gospel that Scotland has ever known. Successor to James Lawson and John Knox at St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh, it was his leadership that gave the Reformation in Scotland the stability and permanence it had previously lacked.
His famous sermons on the sacraments were delivered 1589. Behind Bruce’s teaching on the Lord’s Supper lies a powerful conception of the person and saving work of Christ. In this work Robert Bruce has left us a legacy, which, in the words of the editor of the 1614 edition, is “worthy to be written in letters of gold.”
