James Fraser endured a long conflict with doubts and in this little book, Am I a Christian?, he records how he overcame his fears and arrived at a firm assurance of his salvation in Christ. Taken from his memoirs (Memoirs of the Rev. James Fraser of Brea, found in Scottish Puritans: Select Biographies, volume two), In his book Heaven on Earth, Thomas Brooks wrote, ‘A man may be a true believer, and yet would give all the world, were it in his power, to know that he is a believer. To have grace, and to be sure that we have grace is heaven on this side of heaven
About the Author
James Fraser is chiefly remembered for his 'Memoirs,' which were first published in Edinburgh in 1738, and which have been reprinted by the Banner of Truth Trust in 'Scottish Puritans - Select Biographies, vol. 2.' The 'Memoirs' are a record of the Lord's dealings with him in the course of his 'pilgrimage'. Speaking about Fraser's 'Memoirs' Alexander Whyte said that Fraser 'will live as long as a scholarly religion, and an evangelical religion, and a spiritual religion, and a profoundly experimental religion lives in his native land'.
"To read the work of a Puritan doctor of the soul is to enter a rich world of spiritual theology to feed the mind, heart-searching analysis to probe the conscience, Christ-centred grace to transform the heart, and wise counsel to direct the life. This series of Pocket Puritans provides all this in miniature, but also in abundance." - Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson
