'What is goodness? That is what this is about. Role models these days are so often sportsmen or women, film stars, pops stars, football players, even boxers--extraordinary that we should, as a society, celebrate the ability of one man to render another unconscious, to his peril medically, as often seen. Instead, our role models should be the best people in our society. One such group are the ministers, who are committed to being good in themselves and to encouraging it in others.

"This is one of the best novels I have ever read. Don't be put off by the title or slightly odd cover, this is a beautifully told story. Funny, incredibly sad, with passages of amazing depth."
~ Dr Ray Walker, Bearsden
