Scottish writer and philanthropist whose CONVERSION led him to give away his fortune to become an EVANGELIST. During a stay in Geneva (1816) his private BIBLE studies for theological students led to a religious REVIVAL which greatly influenced the European revival movement known as The Reveil. His works include Evidences and Authority of Divine Revelation (1816) and A Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans (1818).
