Paperback by Saint Andrew Press, £19.99
This carefully researched new book explores the distinctive spiritual landscape of one of Scotland’s most visited and best loved areas, Argyll, the wild and inspirational home of Celtic Christianity and the spiritual heartland of Scotland.
Ian Bradley has drawn on a lifelong love affair with the area to write his tribute to an especially spiritual region, and seeks to uncover the reasons why the spiritual landscape of Argyll is so distinctive, rich and varied.
He said: “For me researching and writing this book has been a labour of love. I grew up steeped in stories from my Argyll-born mother and also very conscious of the distinctiveness of her own faith.
“In this book I seek to explore why the religious outlook and spiritual landscape of Argyll is subtly different from that of other parts of Scotland and, indeed, unique in the British Isles.”
Featuring a cover by popular artist JoLoMo, this is an enthralling and fascinating read for all who are interested in Scottish history and identity, Celtic Christianity and Scotland’s spiritual heritage.
