The Rev John Brown was born on the 23d December 1722 in the small village of Carpow, which is situated in the parish of Abernethy, in the county of Perthshire (Scotland).
As a child, living in impoverished conditions, John contented himself with learning as much about life as he could; he was especially drawn to the Bible, which was his great love and joy.
And his very limited time at school saw him only being able to learn elementary knowledge about reading, writing and arithmetic.
By the age of thirteen he was an orphan, living in poverty. He became a herd-boy, watching sheep to earn his living. However, he still had a deep interest in the things of God, and set out to educate himself in the original languages of the Bible.
And after completing all his studies, Brown was called to be the pastor in the town of Haddington.
He became a prolific author and one of his best known works is The Self-Interpreting Bible, which was published in two volumes in 1778.
The Christian Art of the Rev John Brown includes all the templates (some coloured and some black and white) that are included within Brown’s Self-Interpreting Bible. It is truly a wonderful book of artwork.
