    I have an original edition of the book published in 1937, but have ordered this latest copy of Hebridean Altars. I first discovered Alistair MacLean's wonderful "little ships of tradition and custom and legend and history" four years ago through the writings of Canon David Adam. Eventually two years ago I found my present copy on a book search website. I can honestly say that Hebridean Altars has renewed my personal faith beyond all expectation. The "little ships of tradition and custom," as he says in his introduction, he has towed into port. And there waiting at the quayside is myself. I open the book on most days and never fail to find spiritual help and inspiration. One or two of the studies I know by heart through constant meditation and prayer.

    A wonderful book!! Full of the insights and purity of the people who live on the Hebrides about 100 years ago. Very very inspiring.

    A lovely collection of joy and faith rooted in the observations of simple everyday living. A book to dip into and savour in small bites.

    I like this book, I'd seen someone else's copy and wanted to get a copy for myself.It is perhaps not to everyone's liking, yet it is to mine as it gives an insight into a spirituality and thinking of a disappearing age which is worth treasuring.I have found a few gems in this book that I've passed on to others, I wish there were more.

    I was so delighted to find this book. Previously it was out of print since 1937. It lives up to my expectations

    A moving collection of sacred reflections, stories and prayers woven from the diverse strands of the Christian tradition of the Hebrides. There is a slightly quaint religious sentimentality present at times - it was published in the 1930s - but this is still a lovely book for personal devotion.
