"This is a remarkable, fascinating, highly informed and perceptive reflection on the interweaving of alcohol and religion. At one level, it’s a global tour and full of amusement. At another level it is a book about frailty and joy. It is not about inebriation but about being less inhibited and so possibly even more human. It is stern about exploitation and alive to what is creative and life affirming. I have learned so much and have so much enjoyed it."
Very Rev Prof Sir Iain Torrance – former Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland
