A Spiritual History Of Lewis and Harris

A Spiritual History Of Lewis and Harris Scotland

Banner In The West. A Spiritual History Of Lewis and Harris Scotland. From the unfathomable Standing Stones of Callanish to the quiet dignity of Christian commitment, the people of Lewis and Harris have, for millennia, sought for eternal meaning through their struggles in a robust, stripping environment. Even today, as their Gaelic world is increasingly besieged by change, migration and the impact of the mass-media, their distinctive spirituality continues to fascinate a wider world. Today, the Long Island is, to many, Britain's 'last stronghold of the pure Gospel'; a place still defined by heartfelt religion, a community where, for instance, the threat of a Sabbath ferry service can still arouse considerable passion. In this sparkling account of island faith, from unknown, Megalithic builders to a war of Free Church schism waged on the Internet, award-winning journalist John MacLeod outlines the gripping religious history of this Hebridean community. This is a story that has never been related before, by any author, from the dawn of this island community to the present day, the tale of a people as indomitable as their landscape and a faith as profound as the Hebridean sea.
