Book Cover
Echoes from the Hill Top
by eight talented writers from St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Fergus.

Editor: Mary Lou Cornish

Scroll down for information on the book

Now available: Echoes from the Hill Top!

This anthology by eight authors from St. Andrews Church in Fergus appeared early November 2011.

Although written by eight committed Christians, don't expect to find this book full of preaching or Christian teaching. Rather, in it, you will discover that 'church' people, like everyone else, lead lives of adventure, filled with pleasure and humour, but sometimes touched by fear or pain. Yes, most of these stories relate true incidents--those classified as fiction nevertheless contain truth because they grow out of a Christian worldview. In this book you will fly in a Liberator bomber, spend Christmas with 2,000 Africans, jump from an airplane with a company of elite commandos, and visit with street people of an earlier century.

Comments from the back cover:
This collection of short stories from the St. Andrew's Church family is an inspiring, funny and meaningful glimpse into people's encounters with life at its best and not so best, and is a bright testimony to the indomitable human spirit to press on and make the best of life's little embarrassments, challenges, and trials.
* Rev. David Whitecross, Pastor, St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Fergus

This anthology whispers life into small moments in time that profoundly affected its eight writers. The reader is granted a glimpse at some historical details that intrigue along with spiritual insight that inspires. An old church in Wellington County is the tie that binds them together in Echoes from the Hilltop.
* Marie Male, arts reviewer, Wellington Advertiser
