Newsflash

“Rainbow in the Night” by Fearghas MacFhionnlaigh is now available at £3. This is a wonderful English and Gaelic diglot epic poem, a trialogue between the author’s calvinist background, the Wizard of Oz, and his experience sitting beside the bedside of his seriously ill son Ciaran. Glad to say that I saw Ciaran this year in good health in Waterstone’s Inverness!

“Words Thought and Said”, a book of prayers and reflections by Bill McDonald, is available from www.sanctusmedia.com (as are many old Handsel Press titles).

Jock Stein is continuing to edit the three “Collected Studies” of the work of Thomas F Torrance. His own Volume One on “Gospel, Church and Ministry” was published by Wipf and Stock in 2012, Volume Two on “The Bible and its Interpreters” will come out in 2015 (edited by Adam Nigh) and Volume Three (edited by Bob Walker) after that.

“Embracing Truth” has now sold out, but will continue to be available as a Kindle download.
