Description

Clàr, 2006. 68 pages. Paperback.

A Highland missionary goes to Africa, where he finds that his beliefs and practices, and ultimately his faith, are seriously challenged by people, place and circumstance.

The story is full of allusions and symbolic meaning, as with all of Crichton Smith's work, but written in a clear, sharp and detached way.
his cross-cultural reaching out at the end of The Missionary is what makes the story so relevant and contemporary. Am Miseanaraidh (The Missionary) has been described as one of his finest Gaelic stories.

"Crichton Smith was an almighty powerhouse of a writer; his penetrating, clear-eyed and compassionate style explores great depths of human intellect, experience and emotion without sacrificing an innate lucidity and an edifying humanity. This fresh publication of an insightful and poetic narrative will be warmly welcomed by Crichton Smith's many dedicated readers."
Kevin MacNeil, Writer
