    A Professor of Greek and lifelong champion of the Scots language, William Laughton Lorimer (1885-1967) devoted the last ten years of his life to translating the New Testament. First published in 1983, the work is renowned as a great literary achievement in a language that is, as James Robertson writes in his introduction, 'articulate, literate, ornate, delicate, robust, cheerful, moving and capable of capturing and liberating all the rich wonders of its subject matter'.
