The Shetland tongue has, in many ways, been blessed by its isolation, making it both unmistakable and unlike anything else you will hear on the British Isles. Rich in vocabulary and lyrical in tone, this is the language of sagas and storytellers - and what better stories to tell than those found in the Bible?
Charles Greig's versions of 81 of the most popular Bible stories will help readers to see the Bible afresh and will entertain with inimitable wit and originality. It is illustrated throughout by the famous Shetland cartoonist, Smirk.
A Shetland Bible comes with a free CD of selected stories read out in the Shetland dialect.
