Publisher's Summary

John’s Gospel, from the widely acclaimed modern literary classic The New Testament in Scots is now available as an audio digital download for the first time. Tom Fleming's reading brings out the poetry, wit and humanity of William Lorimer's translation in a way which speaks to everyone. Lorimer (1885-1967) immersed himself in the Scots language from childhood, learning the rich Angus dialect of his locality. He devoted the last decade of his life to translating the New Testament into Scots.

John's Gospel - from The New Testament in Scots

Wonderful!!

As a sassanach, I was brought up in a house ringing with this beautiful accent, so for me, it is nostalgia with a capital N!

I may have forgotten a lot of the dialect, but who cares, the intonation and narration as a whole is faultless, moving, and, for me, comforting.

Thank you so much, Tom Fleming, more please! I could listen to you all night . . .
