God, the Poet and the Devil

Full Product Description

Understanding the integral role of Christianity in eighteenth-century Scottish life is key to understanding the enigma that is Robert Burns. Equally, the poetry of Burns provides penetrating insights into religious life in Scotland and religion in general. This is the starting premise of this enlightening book. Told chronologically, it recounts the story of Burns' life from his family's background in the Mearns to his early death in Dumfries and his influence beyond. Integral to Burns' life was his relationship with God and religion and the fascinating dilemma - how did this intensely moral man reconcile his faith with his notoriously libertarian lifestyle?
