Life of St. Columba
by Adomnan of Iona
translated with introduction by Richard Sharpe
Adomnan's Life is the fullest early account of Columba's life and ministry, and offers a vivid depiction of the abbot among his own monks, written on the spot by the Saint's own successor one hundred years after Columba's death in 597. An introduction that accompanies Adomnan's text examines the historical background, archaeological evidence from Iona, and the legends that grew around Columba in the Middle Ages and more recent times. This is an ideal edition perfect for those seeking spiritual insight or hard historic facts.

The New Testament in Scots
translated by William Laughton Lorimer
A remarkable translation--not a retelling--of the New Testament in the broad Scots tongue. Lorimer was an excellent linguist who studied over 120 translations of the New Testament in over 20 different languages to prepare for this wonderful translation of the books of the New Testament from the original directly into the broad Scots spoken today. A joyful read!
