Donald Macleod's guiding star has always been and remains 'What says the Scripture?' There is no tradition or practice that cannot be re-examined in the light of Scripture. He has constantly reminded us of the great Reformation principle - our authority is 'Scripture Alone'
What is most important is that, like his Master, people hear Donald Macleod gladly.
He makes little concession in his lecturing or preaching to ignorance of Biblical truth, and he makes no apology for theological language. Nevertheless, because he makes doctrine come alive, people are drawn in, people of all different backgrounds as they yield to the Spirit speaking through this man, feeling his eyes are seeing far-off things which he is helping them to glimpse. They are drawn into a new world of exciting vistas of undreamed-of theological truth, and are raised by high oratory to a new level of understanding of their God and Saviour. Truly he is the people's theologian.

People Also Looked At

People who looked at this item also looked at:


"Donald Macleod is the people's theologian. He combines a profound grasp of the language of Scripture and the history of Christian doctrine with a penetrating understanding of the dilemmas of life at the beginning of the third millennium. Through it all shines his adoration of Jesus Christ and his deep sympathy with people. He never loses sight for a moment that he is addressing people - people who are hurting, or confused or ill-informed or tempted. This is theology straight from the heart of a great preacher of the gospel."

Alex MacDonald, Minister of Buccleuch & Greyfriars Free Church of Scotland, Edinburgh
