|We are pleased to be able to offer you some of the books and
writings on faith and religion of The Rev. Dr. James MacLeod (1937-). It has been our desire for some time not
only to make his books and writings more widely known and read, but to render them
they could be placed in the hands of the general public at no expense. Readers wishing to make free copies for spiritual enhancement and
non-commercial use are encouraged to do so.
|The remarked upon selections of his writings
are many. One is listed under the Evangelism section in the Table of
Contents, “The Call of Christ
Smugness in the Churches”. Listed under Inspirational is his short
“Memorial Day Speech”,
which is that most difficult of all things, a truly effective inspirational.
The fact that Dr. MacLeod is the son of a Southern Presbyterian minister (Presbyterian Church U.S.) accounts for the selection of his book, “The Presbyterian Tradition in the South”. Also offered is his book “A Season of Grace” dedicated to the Roman Catholic writer Flannery O’Connor, who gave him instructions in the craft of writing. A friend, he served as a pall bearer at her funeral.
|Dr. MacLeod (1937-) was ordained a minister in 1963 by the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. (Southern)
He has also served in the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. (national). He retired a few years ago from the
Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church established in the U.S. in 1783. He served thirty-nine years in the
ministry of three different Protestant denominations. He was active as a preacher and a teacher. He is retired but still
active today, spending much of his time in speaking and writing.
|Dr. MacLeod (1937-) is listed in Marquis “Who’s Who
in America”, as well as Marquis “Who’s Who
in the World” and Marquis “Who’s Who in the South and Southeast.” His books and writings are
brought to you as an educational service of the Neill Macaulay (1854-1916) Foundation, a non-profit foundation in the
state of Georgia dedicated to concerns of charity, education and faith.
|This is the time for you to read
the writings first hand. We at
NMF wish you joy of the writings. We
suggest you will be reading them more than once, as we have found in them something to return to again and
As the reader peruses these works on and about religion the author would
like to say, “Take the parts and
insights you can use or need. I
do not write dogmatic religion you must agree with. The idea is to meet
needs so you grow in grace. Some insights may help you. Some you may agree with. Some you may
not agree with. Some you can grow into later. Some you may feel you have
grown out of already.
That's fine. God does not change,
but the people who worship Him have changing needs according to where
they begin, how they grow and
how much they have been given grace to see. My hope is to meet readers where
“I would remind you it is not intellectual agreement that holds Christians together, but love alone beyond reason that holds us together. It is this type of love that marks the transcendent love of Jesus Christ. We must love in spite of our differences.”
"I hope the writings contain some allotment of grace for everyone according to need. I do not mean to be all things to all people, but offer something for many. If you get nothing from my writings, that’s all right too. The scripture tells us only those made ready by grace, who have ears to hear, will hear. My writings are meant for the grace filled few God has given understanding ears. If they are meant to hear, they will hear. Where grace is given, it is given. Where grace is not, it is not. This is a mystery. We must trust God on this. I do not know why it is that way, but that is the way it is. But Grace is like the sunshine. When it comes, why argue about it? Enjoy it. It blesses, warms, and cleanly burns."
