Rev. James Caldwell recorded the more amusing stories of his various ministries and on hearing these, artist Jim Douglas of Glenfarg, offered to illustrate his tales. When Jim died in 1995, I inherited papers, musings, photographs and the general deluge of personal memorabilia which post mortem events produce. Poet's Progeny was the first of Jim's writing which became a popular book. Now I have turned his amusing stories into a short book with an unusual structure to inform and entertain the reader. Each chapter starts with a short bible passage then is followed by a contemporary commentary before Jim offers his amusing tales. Accordingly, this can be a reflective book, an aid to understanding the Bible in today's complex society or a very amusing account which blows out of the water the image of a Scottish Presbyterian minister as a bland, dour preacher. Jim's tales will certainly have you shaking with laughter. Miller
