Gleanings of Highland Harvest by Murdoch Campbell
The Revd Murdoch Campbell was a pastor in Glasgow and the Highlands from 1930 until 1968. This reprint of one of his best-loved books remembers an affectionate and spiritually exercised people whose words and deeds give wonderful insights into Christian experience. They felt awe at God's tender condescension, and joy in His presence, whether in day-to-day prayer or, for some, in rapt converse with Him. Yet without a written record they would soon be forgotten, just as their psalmody, the only instance in Europe of its musical form, has now all but vanished. The book is full of incident and atmosphere, and people you feel you know. The editor has retained from earlier editions J. Douglas MacMillan's biographical notes and historical overview, written to help readers understand 'a very definite period and a very specific culture ...and absorb its atmosphere'.
