You know, I still can't confidently say that I "know" lambda calculus,
yet I program in Scheme almost every day. I found "Teach Yourself Scheme
in Fixnum Days" by Dorai Sitaram (online at 
http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/dorai/t-y-scheme/t-y-scheme.html ) the most
useful. I think a more thorough introduction is given by the books
"The Little Schemer" and "The Seasoned Schemer" by Daniel P Friedman and
Matthias Felleisen (MIT Press). It really is an elegant language when
you get into it, but probably more mathematical than most engineer-style.

I hope that helps. Ask again if parts of the guile used in the test
framework are tripping you up, or maybe you could bring it to London
for the Scheme UK meeting tomorrow evening, mentioned in the Schemer's
Gazette at http://www.freelists.org/archives/swn/08-2004/msg00001.html
