The St Andrews Seven is the moving and inspiring story of six young men whose remarkable influence on one another as fellow students in the University of St Andrews.

The St. Andrews Seven. by Stuart Piggin and John Roxborough. Andrews Seven chronicles the rise of an emphasis on overseas missions among several students at St. Andrews and their Professor. Then, as now, there were those who felt that the Christian faith was not academically respectable, yet these students were both accomplished scholars and men of faith. Their effects on the establishment of overseas missions and colleges, especially in India, and the rigors of student life, faith and politics at St. Andrews in the 18th century are an inspiration for students even today. Andrews Seven book. The finest flowering of missinary zeal in Scottish history. Stuart Piggin is the Director for the Centre for the History of Christian Thought and Experience at Macquarie University and Head of the Christian Thought Department of the Australian College of Theology.

The St Andrews Seven. the finest flowering of Missionary Zeal in Scottish History. The St Andrews Seven is the moving and inspiring story of six young men whose remarkable influence on one another as fellow students in the University of St Andrews, Scotland, in the 1820s led them to the profound conviction that ‘Only one thing seemed to matter: to discover God’s will and do it’.

Piggin, Stuart & Roxborough, John.

The genteel Mrs Andrews sits primly next to her husband on an ornate Rococo-style bench. She was about eighteen at the time of this portrait. She is dressed in her finest clothes and her demeanour, like that of her husband, oozes wealth and respectability. She, in some ways, appears doll-like in her bright blue hooped skirt and pointed silver-coloured shoes

I saw your fat ass in Jon Stewart's book, 'America'. Jim Gaffigan probably. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this book not actually written by Jon Stewart?

The St Andrews Seven is the moving and inspiring story of six young men whose remarkable influence on one another as fellow students in the University of St Andrews, Scotland, in the 1820s led them to the profound conviction that 'Only one thing seemed to matter: to discover God's will and do it'. The chief characters in this extraordinary account of a teenage enthusiasm to serve Christ to the end of the earth are the great Thomas Chalmers, and six of his students: Alexander Duff, John Urquhart, John Adam, Robert Nesbit, William Sinclair Mackay, and John Ewart. Their influence in later life, especially in India, was to be far beyond their wildest expectations. The authors trace vividly and popularly the story the aspirations, fears, doubts, struggles, opposition, sorrows, triumphs of these six most gifted and dedicated young Christians, including one of their number who died before he could fulfil his heart's ambition. First published in 1985, The St Andrews Seven once again brings the names of these men to the fore, and challenges the church of today to put aside its mediocrity and respond obediently to Christ s great commission.

Excellent read, would highly recommend this book! No trouble with this order.

There was a mix up with a recent order of mine but worldofbooksusa quickly amended the problem. We thought the book had been lost in the mail, so they quickly replaced my order with a different book from their inventory. The orginal book finally came, but they allowed me to keep the new order as well because of the confusion. They are very professional at worldofbooksusa!

A pastor friend gave me this book a year ago. I started reading it on a recent trip and couldn't put it down. God used this book to challenge me to excellence in my study of the Bible, communicating God's Word to people around me, and the power of prayer. Don't miss another key point in this book: these believers studied, prayed, discussed and served together. Not only will St. Andrews Seven give you a snapshot of early Scottish Missions, it will also challenge you to live all out for Christ in fulfilling His Great Commission at the start of the new millennium. I highly recommend it and other biographies published by Banner of Truth (look it up on the web)and sold by Amazon!
