Diary of a Heretic: The Pagan Adventures of a Chri&hellip by Mark Townsend
5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
In this book, Mark Townsend opens his heart and soul to the reader. Far from being narcissistic, this is a glimpse through the window of another person's soul which also acts as a mirror into our own. It is brave, authentic and deeply inspiring.
The book is the diary of one year in Mark's life which charts his struggle to balance, integrate and assimilate his dual callings along Christian and Pagan pathways. For me, it describes the process of a man who, like a bonsai tree being freed from its binding-wires and tiny pot, rediscovers its essential tree-ness and slowly, awkwardly and often painfully begins to grow - his roots down into Paganism, and his branches up into Christianity (or… Read more

If you are thinking about a career in landscape architecture it's worth reading as it gives a very broad-brush overview of the discipline, but once you begin your training and education, I don't think it will satisfy you for long. It's like milk for babies - OK for the first few months of your life, but very quickly you'll be desperate for some real sustenance.

If you are already studying, and even more so if you're in practice, I wouldn't recommend it for your own bookshelf... however it might be a good present to give to those people who still think you're a gardener!

The illustrations are of good… Read more
