JL Mackay's Work Included in New Publication

September 3, 2019

The most recent work of former Edinburgh Theological Seminary Principal John L Mackay, has been posthumously included in a new Crossway publication set for release this October.

Prof. Mackay had completed a contribution to the new ESV Expository Commentary on 1 Samuel–2 Chronicles before he passed away in October 2018. 

ETS Principal Rev. Iver Martin said, “John L Mackay was one of the finest scholars which the Free Church of Scotland has produced in the last century. This commentary, published almost a year after his death in 2018, will be regarded, like his many other works, as a classic piece of exposition, and will be hugely helpful to Bible students.” 

Originally ordained and inducted as minister of Rosskeen Free Church in 1980, he was appointed as Professor of Hebrew and Old Testament Studies at the Free Church College in 1983. He was appointed Principal in 2010.

As well as his teaching role at the Free Church College, Prof. Mackay served the Free Church for many years as Senior Clerk of the General Assembly.

The commentary will be available from the 3rd of October from Crossway Publications.
