What People are Saying About This
“Even if it had broken no fresh ground Mr. Betjeman’s introduction would still make this book unique.

The whole book is prefaced by an editorial essay which is pure gold.” – Times Literary Supplement“Without exaggeration, holds enough information and inspiration for a lifetime of church visiting.” – Times Educational Supplement“To Betjeman a church was touched by the hand of God and blessed as a place of private worship.
