Money, power, marriage, friendship, health, sleep, jealousy, war, peace, eternity: the ancient wisdom of Solomon in the 21st-century language of the Scottish patter. Full-to-the-brim of pithy wisdom, this expressive book will appeal to all who enjoy the richness of the Scots tongue. Injecting life into these ancient wise words, Jamie Stuart's language of the people connects the down-to-earth Scots character with the practical relevance today of the wisdom of Solomon.

Jamie Stuart

Now retired, Jamie Stuart had a varied career - gents' outfitter, professional actor, vacuum-cleaner salesman, residential child-care officer ... and as an acclaimed writer. He was an elder of High Carntyne Church, Glasgow. Sadly, he passed away aged 95 in July 28 2016.

'Jamie Stuart has produced another masterpiece. His infectious enthusiasm for the Book of Proverbs and the culture of his native Glasgow shines through every page as he brings this ancient wisdom to birth for a new generation.' -- Dr John Drane, University of Stirling 'There is gladness and joy in this book - enjoy it!' -- Professor Robert Davidson
