A Shetland Bible with Accompanying Free CD
by Charles Greig with illustrations by Smirk (Stephen Gordon)
Publisher:Saint Andrew Press
If you are a native of the Shetland Isles this is for you, if you are a southerner like me, with a liking for the lilt of the Shetland voice, then equally, this is for you! Do read the Foreword and Introduction, then you will understand where Charles Greig is coming from.
To begin with I needed the CD to listen to, and followed along with the printed words, together I found I could understand and enjoy this unique reading of Bible stories from both the Old and New Testaments. As I listened longer, I just sat back and let the sound of the words alone tell the stories and I enjoyed the different voices, men and women, which gave colour to the readings. The black and white illustrations by Shetland cartoonist Smirk mustnít be missed; they bring a flavour of local Shetland scenes yet illustrate the passages fittingly.
