Narrative of a Mission of Inquiry to the Jews From the Church of Scotland in 1839. Vols. I & II
BONAR, Andrew A.; M'CHEYNE, Robert Murray
Scottish church missionaries have at different times been active in the Near East. The earliest and one of the most remarkable initiatives was this "mission of inquiry" to Palestine undertaken on behalf of the Church of Scotland by a group which included Bonar and M'Cheyne. The mission was inspired by a contemporary renewal of interest in the Jewish people.
