Rev. Murdo Macaulay was a minister in Scotland, after the turn of WW2.
Rev. Murdo Macaulay was born in Upper Carloway, Lewis, the eldest child of a family of four boys and two girls. On the day of his birth the famous and saintly Mrs. MacIver of Carloway predicted that he was to be a minister of the Gospel. This prediction, of which he had been informed, appeared to have no particular bearing upon his early career. It was not until the great spiritual revival, which began in the district of Carloway a few years before the outbreak of the Second World War, that Mr. Macaulay came to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Whatever thoughts he may have entertained previously, it was in a prisoner of war camp in Germany that he made known his decision to respond to his call to the ministry of the Free Church.
The historical account of the Lord’s sovereignty in preparing him for the ministry makes for interesting reading. It includes a full secondary education, a number of years in military training, some years in business where he came to understand the foibles of the public whom he had to serve, a graduation course at Edinburgh University and a divinity Course in the Free Church College.
Mr. Macaulay had a studious mind, a retentive memory, and scholastic ability for research. He had a good working knowledge of six languages, yet he was more concerned about stating facts than about clothing them in attractive language.
Every Christian ought to consider the manner in which Christ’s Spirit engages men in spiritual revival and renewal throughout the history of the church.
