'Of all the commentators on John Betjeman and his works, Kevin Gardner seems to me the most acute.' --Bevis Hillier, President of the Betjeman Society
'Gardner convincingly asserts that Betjeman's thinking is constructed with the stuff of Anglicanism in all its diverse nature. It is a moving endorsement.' --Anthony Thwaite OBE, Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature
'Deserving of attention and respect, Betjeman and the Anglican Imagination is a discerning, detailed, and sustained unpeeling of the mentality of lay Anglicanism and a religious meditation on the legitimacy of doubt in a system of faith. A brilliant work by the supreme Betjeman scholar of our times.' --Stephen Games, editor of several Betjeman anthologies
