Format: Paperback
What a wonderful story!, The author has achieved an excellent balance of making you want to believe the plot can both succeed and fail throughout! The richness of the local cultural details of life in the Kingdom of Fife and the historical background makes this novel a truly enjoyable journey. I can't wait for the film to come out - Bill Forsythe please come out of retirement and take this one on!

Format: Paperback
William Clinkenbeard's second novel, "The Battle of Inchcolm Abbey," like his first "O is for Oval, Oswald and Osama," features Davis Lane, a retired minister turned "freelance theologian." This time Lane is hired to look into the plans of an American developer to put a golf course, hotel, and casino on Inchcolm Island, an small island in the Firth of Forth that contains the remains of a well-preserved medieval abbey. In addition the developer promises to restore the abbey to its former glory. Jobs would be created, an abbey would be restored, but at what cost to the serene monastic grounds....
Lane's research into the history of the abbey is fascinating, and the local color gives the reader a great insight into Fife and Edinburgh. Clinkenbeard is a witty writer whose "asides" add greatly to the story. He introduces a series of interesting and quirky characters, as Lane unearths details about abbey life and gets involved with demonstrations by bird and seal-lovers against the construction. The reader goes back and forth as to the wisdom of building the golf course, and the theological component is intriguing.
I found this book to be an interesting fictional study based on historical data and legend. As in the first book, the reader absorbs the moral and religious elements easily because they are woven into compelling stories. I would definitely recommend "The Battle of Inchcom Island" as a well-written novel which makes you think.

Format: Paperback
My wife and I heard about Scotland but never visited. After reading "non-stop", riveted by this extraordinary tale, we feel like we have been to a place where modern "insoluble" issues originated- and were actually solved. Theology has never been so practical, so interesting, so historical and so right! If this one doesn't hit somebody's "best of show" lists, we will be disappointed. We hope our enthusiasm for the book (and it's courageous author) will be enjoyed by all who wonder about the power of the human spirit to "do the right thing" in the face of impossible barriers. Great book!

an interesting read, a nicely crafted novel, and a fun "trip to Scotland"
It is nice to get some history along with a fair story, and the cover shot of Incolm Abbey is lovely

Excellent book and I highly recommend it to all. It is well written, keeps you engaged and coincidental to a current golf course development debate ongoing in Scotland
