James Philip ministered from 1958 until 1997 at Holyrood Abbey Parish Church, Edinburgh. He was powerful example of the usefulness to which God may give one man's ministry, principally in one place. We are not in a position to suggest all the reasons for the amazing worth of such a ministry, but some are obvious because of their biblical nature. Besides personal and private prayer, he ensured that the church prayer meeting was at the heart of the life of God's people at Holyrood. His preaching was marked by the seriousness of one who knew that he spoke always in the presence of God and with great responsibility for people's souls. It was prophetic in that it spoke to the times and issues of the day. Not one part of the Scriptures was neglected in the course of systematic exposition. It highlighted the transcendence of God and the accountability of men and women.
Complementary to the preaching ministry of James Philip were sermon tapes, and the widely used Daily Bible Reading Notes. The regular writing of the notes was a massive task and responsibility with telling benefit to many, not only within the Holyrood congregation but elsewhere and especially to missionaries. Helpful reference is made to his love and concern for those in training for the ministry and those serving overseas.
