About the Author
James Durham (1622-1658)
James Durham was the eldest son of John Durham. He studied at St. Andrews University, and afterwards lived the life of a "country gentleman." He was captain of a troop in the civil war, and while praying publicly with his troop was overheard by David Dickson, who thought he must be a chaplain because of his prayer. Dickson, a prominent Presbyterian divine, successfully encouraged Durham to pursue the ministry.
After studying at Glasgow University, he was licensed to preach in 1647, and in 1650 was appointed professor of divinity at the university. He was soon appointed as chaplain to the king. He was called to the ministry in Glasgow (St. Mungos), where he ministered until his death in 1658.
Durham died at the age of 36. His sermons on Revelation have been published by Old Paths Publications. The last work he wrote, The Dying Mans Testament to the Church of Scotland, or A Treatise Concerning Scandal, has been published by Napthali Press.
