  1. Mr Carr-Comm and readers:
    It’s with great sadness that I record the passing of Gordon Strachan, who died 14 July 2010, in Edinburgh after a few weeks of illness. He illuminated lives. He let us in to a rarified world of scholarship. He set a standard for debate and study. We’ll all miss him.
    He spent 10 years working on the book “Jesus the Master Builder” and it is a Tour de Force of reasoned argument. Of course there is the knowledge of Gordon the puckish, donnish, ironical, wistful, artistic professional scholar. He never seems to be dogmatic. He just does the work, lays it out, argues the debating points and opens your mind.
    You learn that whether Jesus actually came to ‘England’ / or not is beside the point.
    There are thousands of words written in all shades of opinion about that book, and precious few have actually read it.
    He was one of the good guys. A great inspiration loved by all who knew him.
