James Stewart (minister)
Educated at the High School of Dundee and the University of St Andrews from 1913, he took a first in classics (MA 1917). His studies were interrupted by service in France with the Royal Engineers (1916–1918). After the war he pursued divinity at New College, Edinburgh, then a United Free Church of Scotland institution, with postgraduate work at the University of Bonn (1921–1922) and an assistantship at Barclay Church, Edinburgh. He also served as Chaplain to the Queen in Scotland from 1952–1966, later as extra chaplain, and as Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in 1963.
He authored many books, including Heralds of God, The Strong Name, and A Man in Christ. In 1999, Preaching Magazine ranked James S. Stewart as the best preacher of the twentieth century, commenting that his books on preaching "have inspired tens of thousands of preachers to strive for greater effectiveness in their proclamation of God's Word." Stewart wrote several books on the art and craft of preaching and co-edited with H. R. Mackintosh what is still the standard English translation of Friedrich Schleiermacher's influential work, The Christian Faith.
