One Good Owner: God Is in the Driving SeatBy: Murdo Murchison
|Publisher||Christian Focus Publications|
Murdo Murchison's life turned upside down on August 30th 2016 when he collapsed with a massive seizure. Within six hours he held the result of a CT scan showing a two centimetre tumour in his brain. This book brings together tales from Murdo's life: humorous exploits from his Highland childhood, experiences from his career as a business owner, and stories about his family and friends. Although these stories are written as he faces a life cut short, each chapter pulsates with a love for his Lord and Saviour and a sweet realism as he recounts the lessons he has learnt during a life well lived.
Murdo's testimony encourages me greatly to store up treasures of permanent value - it won't be in vain because it is ultimately all that matters on both sides of death.
Kate Forbes, MSP for Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch
In this book, we see that Murdo, bravely and honestly, writing out of a context of terminal illness sees that the future is not dark but is as bright as the promises of God.

I commend to you Murdo's story. More than that I commend to you Murdo's Lord, in Whom we find meaning and purpose and life in all its fullness.

... well written, clear, interesting, real, sad, joyful, full of life and full of hope. Inspiring for Christians and non-Christians alike!

Profound and poignant, as we see the Lord's plans and purposes for Murdo's life unfold before our eyes. I am privileged to know the man and call him my friend.
