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 Murchison, born and bred in the Highlands, owned a much-respected used car warehouse close to Stirling in Scotland. A man of God who has a deep love for his home, he has been a church planter and preacher in his spare time for several years.
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.

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.
