Blessed Plot: How the English Parish Built a Nation
Rev Dr Andrew Rumsey is the author of Parish: An Anglican theology of Place, recently published by SCM Press. ‘A magnificent book’, according to Bishop John Inge, this explores the ways in which English culture and community have been profoundly shaped by the parish system - and how resilient and resonant the parochial idea remains. Sam Wells writes: ‘Andrew Rumsey sees with the eyes of a poet, writes with the hand of a scholar and loves with the heart of a priest’.
