For most of the last two thousand years, churches have formed the core of community activity throughout Britain and Ireland. Despite increasing secularisation, more people still go to church on Sunday than attend football matches on Saturday. In this charming new book, popular TV presenter Pam Rhodes takes the reader on a personal, illustrated tour from Orkney to Cornwall, Belfast to Essex, exploring the rich variety of architectural styles, history and character of her favourite churches. Alongside the glory of some of the great cathedrals we are invited to sample the intimate atmosphere of some of the tiniest churches in the land. We visit churches which have endured throughout the last millennium and communities which have played their part in modern day conflict resolution. Here too are churches beloved by Terry Waite, George Carey and other well-known worshippers. John Rogers' outstanding photographs reveal new treasures to discover and reflect upon in this beautiful book.
Pam Rhodes is known around the world as the presenter of BBC Television's Songs of Praise and her popular Hearts and Hymns programme on Premier Christian Radio. She describes herself as an 'anorak' in her fascination for hymns old and new, and her books on hymn-writers, like Love So Amazing, Then Sings My Soul and Hear My Song are essentials in many a church vestry! A natural storyteller with 25 varied books under her belt, Pam is perhaps best known for her novels packed with down-to-earth characters and situations that inspire and entertain.|JOHN ROGERS is an acclaimed photographer whose work is widely published in national magazines and Sunday newspaper supplements.
