5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, wonderful reading and beautifully produced, 14 Feb 2007
By 
This review is from: A Glimpse of Heaven: Catholic Churches of England and Wales (Hardcover)
This beautifully produced book is not only a celebration of the architectural splendours of many catholic churches in England and Wales but also a fascinating insight into a part of British social history about which many people have no knowledge. It is not a religious book. It is not just a book about architecture but a thoroughly researched and wonderfully readable account of the rebirth of Catholicism in Britain and its expression in the building of many new churches from Victorian times onwards - many churches from earlier times are also featured.

You may not read it cover to cover but you will dip into it regularly and in the process learn more and more fascinating facts. Full marks to the author for his presentation of a fascinating subject in a wonderfully readable text, to the photographer for the stunning illustrations and to English Heritage for their support of this project.

This book will not disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revelatatory, 12 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was a revelation. Although I knew about the glorious Catholic churches of London and in Yorkshire, where I live, I had no idea of the amazing architectural gems elsewhere, particularly in Lancashire. My eyes have been opened and I can foresee many visits around the country in the near future.
