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.
