Andrew Gray was a youthful Church of Scotland minister who led one of the congregations in Glasgow Cathedral; the Outer High Church of Glasgow. Gray’s personal holiness was such that he was described as a “spark from heaven.” He was a warm and winsome preacher with a deep spiritual experience who could also be searching in urging God’s threatenings upon the consciences of his hearers.

It has also been said of him, “We may safely say that never in the history of our country did a man of his years make so deep a mark.”
