By Jocko on 7 Dec 2010
Format: Paperback
I don't remember when a book has surprised and touched me as much as Bishop Peter's Pilgrimage. As a lover of Norfolk and its tradition of clerical diarists, BP'sP looked like a pleasant little read - a vicarious journey, offering insight into a world of which I knew nothing, and a modern counterpart to Woodford and Armstrong.

The basic premise is simple. In 1995-6, on the 900th anniversary of the establishment of the Norwich Diocese, Bishop Peter Nott decided to visit every parish, meet the people and explore their lives and faith. This he did, and the book, a day by day account, is the result.

It's compassionate kind-hearted and often deeply poignant - as one might expect, for Nott's journey brings encounters with tragedy and charm in equal measure. More surprisingly, it's often unexpectedly frank, infused with a dry irony that doubtless kept the author sane. An artist and former artillery officer, Nott emerges as a man of intellect and serious spirituality. Often tired and overstretched, he retains a soldier's unswerving commitment to those in his care. And somehow, in a way I can't really explain. he reveals what the church is for, and for the first time in my life I can imagine being part of it.

This is a deceptive book - richly enjoyable and, for me at least, with a significance far beyond expectation.
