Review this Book

Gorbals...and God


Gorbals and God is a lively and compelling account of the author’s struggle against the poverty which affected so many Gorbals residents in the mid-1930s until redevelopment occurred in the 1960s.

Author, Hugh Sawers, documents with unerring accuracy and insight the trials and challenges he encounters as he grows up. Gorbals and God is his account of how he meets and overcomes the hurdles before him. As well as a biographical tale, it is also a journey from atheism to belief, as Hugh is overwhelmed by a sense of God’s presence in his life and is called to the ministry.

The book is testimony to the truth that we often struggle to overcome acute poverty whilst ignoring the riches which are within our grasp.
