No 58-page booklet covering the entire Christian history of Scotland from the Culdees to the present can hope to be anything more than a sketch — the more so when each page is one-third illustrations! Nevertheless, it is a valuable introduction and shouldn’t be missed. The text is clear and interesting, the photographs attractive, the entire product a treat to handle. It would make a wonderful gift — another reminder that our roots do lie in the Christian not the pagan past.
