Johnston McKay is a writer, broadcaster and Church of Scotland minister. For nearly ten years, he presented the popular weekly programme Personal Touch on Radio Scotland. A former Editor of Religious Broadcasting for BBC Scotland, he is the author of Glimpses of Hope: God at Ground Zero and This Small Pool. He lives in Largs and is presently acting minister of a church in Ardrossan, Scotland. The book in your hands is alive! Turn the pages and you will meet real people, dilemmas you'll probably recognise in your own life, and ideas that are embodied in stories and passion. Alison Elliot, Moderator of the General Assembly 2004 A racy and rumbustious clerical autobiography that is also the reflective swansong of a distinguished religious broadcaster. Harry Reid, former Editor, The Herald. If I had to choose someone to preach for Scotland, to tell stories for Scotland, to irritate for Scotland, I would choose Johnston McKay.

This book does all these things, and it also hints at the intelligence, the generosity and the vulnerability which makes him a treasure to his friends Very Revd Dr Andrew McLellan, HM Inspector of Prisons for Scotland Johnston McKay's memoir is enjoyable, trenchant, amusing, and full of hard-won insights into the joys and struggles of parish ministry and religious broadcasting. And the pain and vulnerability of the author's personal journey make A Touch Personal a compelling and affecting read. Ron Ferguson, Herald columnist Be warned! This book does not keep its distance. It will get under your skin. It is passionately committed and achingly honest. That's as personal as it gets. Revd Alan McDonald, Moderator designate of the General Assembly of 2006
