In this book, Jamie Stuart gives a informative and humourous interpretation of well loved bible stories in the glasgow venacular.

we have thoroughly enjoyed the Glasgow Bible and have read the stories to several people, it is a very interesting and at bits funny interpretation of the bible. We would recommend everyone read this and it is a 'perfect gift' too.

In this year when we celebbrate the King James translation of the Bible into English it is really great to read the great stories of the Good Book in my own West of Scotland language. I found myself just reading on and on and having a great laugh at the lovely use of the Scottish vernacular. I have now sent a copy to friends in England to enjoy!

I really liked the idea behind this work, but it is like an appetiser rather than a feast. Perhaps that is the point - read this and then go and find a full Bible. 'Taste and see that the Lord is good.'

I'm not Scottish (or should that be 'I'm no Scots') but I found this amusing and enjoyable. There is a glossary for any Sassenachs who don't ken all the words but most of it is pretty obvious. My only criticism is that Mr Stuart has inexplicably missed out some essential Bible stories. How could he possibly not have included the Fall with the talking snake and the apple, the walls of Jericho, the woman taken in adultery and the whole of Acts including the conversion of St. Paul? I'll let him off not tackling Revelation and all those epistles! Not sure what the intent was - to entertain, to stimulate interest in the original, to make the Bible accessible to Glaswegians - but as a light read I can recommend it.

Great book.This is a Glasgow Bible every Glaswegian, (or anyone who likes the Glasgow tongue), should read. I would highly recommend this book to anybody who likes biblical stores written in their mother Glasgow tongue.

There is an element of interest and some fun in reading the Gospels in this vernacular. However little is added to the appeal of reading in modern English and this is not a "Glasgow Bible" merely the Gospels.
Interesting if you like that sort of thing
