Just a wee stoater of The Guid Book, so well thought out in our own dialect. I had the privilege of meeting up with Jamie Stuart when I was in Glasgow last May, such a delightful man. He also has another guid book out called - "Proverbs in the Patter." U can get a copy of his books thru -
An elder in the Church of Scotland, Jamie Stuart has spent much of his last few years putting the Scriptures into the Scots vernacular.
A Glasgow Bible is compiled from new material taken from the Auld Testament, plus the complete Glasgow Gospel, re-edited to maintain its fresh and lively idiom. ===========================================================
A fun, accessible reading of the Bible Acclaimed as 'the Scottish publishing event of the year' (THE EVENING TIMES) and 'a work of love' (THE HERALD), the publication in 1992 of the original Glasgow Gospel with headlines in national newspapers, and on radio and TV. The success of the book prompted the author to write a follow-up - Auld Testament Tales - which also captured the spirit of the Bible in the lively Glasgow vernacular.
Now in this CD, Jamie Stuart's skills as a performer come to the fore as he brings the text to life with his infectious enthusiasm and charming delivery.
'From 'no mean city' has come no mean achievement, a triumph of imagination and graphic writing which will be welcome far beyond Glasgow. I'll be surprised if it does not whet your appetite to go back to the Bible and discover, or rediscover, for yourself the riches it contains. And if it does, Jamie will be 'fair chuffed - PROFESSOR ROBERT DAVIDSON
