Echoes from the Hill Top

Rated 4.00/5 based on 3 reviews
In this anthology by eight members of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Fergus, Ontario, you will discover that ‘church’ people, like everyone else, lead lives of adventure, filled with pleasure and humour, but sometimes touched by fear or pain. These stories reflect real life. Those classified as fiction contain truth because they grow out of a Christian world view. More

About Ray Wiseman

Ray Wiseman's early memory--being pushed up a rope ladder and over the side of a tramp steamer at age two--set the tone for his life. He has spent much time travelling, and most of his life looking from the hilltop of one adventure to the beginning of the next. Born in England, Ray has lived in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, and South Africa. He has traveled in Africa and Asia.

Ray counts writing as his fourth career. He began his working life as an electronics technician, then returned to school to study for the Christian ministry. He spent time in the pastorate and overseas with a missionary society. He returned to electronics, working as a video systems engineer. In 1993, he took early retirement to pursue a career as a writer and speaker.

Ray graduated from Radio College of Canada (now RCC Schools) in 1952. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Waterloo and a Bachelor of General and Biblical Studies from Briercrest College. He has also studied at the Toronto Institute of Linguistics and The International Institute of Christian Communications (Daystar University College) in Nairobi.

Ray is a member of The Word Guild, an association of Canadian authors and writers who are Christian.

Review by: Carolyn Wilker on Feb. 24, 2012 :
Echoes from the Hilltop is a collection of nonfiction and fiction by authors from various walks of life who have made their homes in the Canadian prairies to Cape Breton Island, in England and mission field in India and Africa. Stories range from a boyhood in Saskatchewan, milk delivery by horse in Toronto in the 50s, learning to parachute, call to a Sydney parish and tea shop talk to snow angels. The connection of all eight authors is membership in St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Fergus, Ontario. You’ll laugh, cry, and hold your breath in suspense as you read.
