The Testament of Gideon Mack is James Robertson's acclaimed novel exploring faith and belief. For Gideon Mack, faithless minister, unfaithful husband and troubled soul, the existence of God, let alone the Devil, is no more credible than that of ghosts or fairies. Until the day he falls into a gorge and is rescued by someone who might just be Satan himself. Mack's testament - a compelling blend of memoir, legend, history, and, quite probably, madness - recounts one man's emotional crisis, disappearance, resurrection and death. It also transports you into an utterly mesmerising exploration of the very nature of belief. 'Fascinating, extraordinary, strange, rich' Sunday Telegraph 'Overwhelmingly compassionate and thought-provoking. Demands another read' Irvine Welsh, Guardian 'Hugely enjoyable, very funny, deeply refreshing ...its touch of devilry makes it even more of a joy' Herald 'Fabulous ...a work of the highest literary quality' Scotland on Sunday 'Astonishingly accomplished, utterly compelling from start to finish ...could well be the best novel published anywhere this year' Big Issue 'James Robertson is a brilliant novelist.

RS Thomas was the greatest religious poet writing in English in the 20th century, but the 270 poems he chose for this definitive selection reveal a wide range of themes and concerns. He was The Testament of Gideon Mack download ebook pdf a passionate Welsh patriot, but also an outspoken critic of his countrymen. His poems are an expression of his lifelong argument with himself, of his insistent search for God. In them he grapples with ideas of Welshness, with issues of technology, pollution, the decline of culture. He wrote too about love, about landscape, nature and birds. His is an urgent, prophetic and unique voice. Casual and comic, Simont s drawings are . . . lively, adding vitality to the brisk first-person account of yet another deductive triumph. . . . Satisfying, nicely structured and written, this can also be used for reading aloud to younger children. "The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books""
