Publisher's Summary

Luke’s Gospel from the widely acclaimed modern literary classic The New Testament in Scots, 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.

Powerful and Poignant

A unique and personal translation of the Gospel of Luke powerfully performed in Scots. It is personable and reverent, while also being charmingly home-like in English usage.
