by Professor Donald Macleod

This thought-provoking booklet, based on a memorable lecture by one of Scotland’s leading thinkers about religion at an Islands Book Trust event in Summer 2009, sets out Professor Donald Macleod’s views on an important and controversial subject – the relationship between Calvinism, literature and creative writing. The caricature of rigid Presbyterianism suppressing artistic expression is well-known, but is it true and is it consistent with the teachings of Calvin? Professor Macleod was born in Lewis and is Principal of the Free Church College in Edinburgh.
