Money, power, marriage, friendship, health, sleep, jealousy, war, peace, eternity: here is the ancient wisdom of Solomon in the 21st-century language of the Scottish patter. Full-to-the-brim with pithy wisdom, this expressive book will appeal to all who enjoy the richness of the Scots tongue. Injecting life into these ancient wise words, Jamie Stuart's language of the people connects the down-to-earth Scots character with the practical relevance today of the wisdom of Solomon. A committed Christian, Jamie is `fair chuffed' to follow up A Glasgow Bible with Proverbs in the Patter, his own translation of sayings from the Book of Proverbs into modern Scots. "The clitter-clatters o a clishmaclaver are gey tasty, an are guzzled ower in a wanner. They wha howk a sheuch may tummle intae it theirsels; an they wha tak tae rollin stanes may hiv them stottin aboot their ain heids." Proverbs 26: 22, 27

Jamie Stuart

Now retired, Jamie Stuart had a varied career - gents' outfitter, professional actor, vacuum-cleaner salesman, residential child-care officer ... and as an acclaimed writer. He was an elder of High Carntyne Church, Glasgow. Sadly, he passed away aged 95 in July 28 2016.

'Jamie Stuart has produced another masterpiece. His infectious enthusiasm for the Book of Proverbs and the culture of his native Glasgow shines through every page here as he brings this ancient wisdom to birth for a new generation.' John Drane, author and theologian -- John Drane
