Identical twin sisters, one good, one bad, fall in love with the same man, and, as always, the gentle Kate loses to the vivacious and more worldly Pat.

from Kirkwall, Orkney
Hardly a tree, yet rich pasturage, strong Norse traditions, war relics, a landscaped oil terminal-in showing us these, and meeting his fellow islanders, Howie Firth indicates how they feel themselves to be more Orcadians than Scots. Yet their faith, centred on 12th-century St Magnus Cathedral, is the same.

God Bless America
' The hottest thing going in the United States is the evangelical community ... The way these People vote will be the deciding factor as to who will be the next president of the United States.'
(DR BOB BILLINGS, Moral Majority)
Until recently such extravagant claims would have been laughed at. but now the politicians may need to take them seriously - suddenly a Christian America seems to be on the march!
There are 40 to 50 million evangelicals in America today. All three presidential candidates claim to be born again and by far the most vocal and visible part of the evangelical movement is swinging sharply to the political Right. As preachers and politicians battle for supremacy, a broad but effective coalition marshalls the forces of this extraordinary phenomenon.
But how far can the dreams of a new and moral America become a practical political reality?
' We have an obligation to our children and our children's children to see to it that this American dream does not fail.'
