Format: Paperback
Published to mark the 75th anniversary of the revival of the Anglican Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, the book's exploration of the meaning of sacred space in all its connotations, written from across the spectrum of Christian orthodoxy (and beyond) should have a wider appeal.

The introductory remarks of a collection can be crucial in understanding the way in which the separate contributions should be understood to form a developing narrative. Sadly little guidance is forthcoming here, and in consequence each essay sits alongside its neighbours with little synergy.

Places may be considered holy for a variety of reasons, not all well explored here. Indeed all of the authors share a common view of sacred space being that space set aside for the purpose of being sacred, though for some this is literal (buildings, liturgy) for others metaphorical (illuminated texts, literature) or archetypal (Mary as bearer of the divine).

No serious consideration is given to the idea that all of life is sacred, and that therefore there can and should be no idea of thinking of some spaces as mundane and others holy. Similarly, the idea that places might be sacred because God is somehow more present in them (permanently or intermittently) or more accessible from them, including the Hebrew tradition of marking places where God had been specially encountered, is not discussed.

Jeremy Sheehy's `Sacred Space and the Incarnation' seeks to argue that because the Incarnation occurred at a particular time in a particular place, therefore it must be appropriate for Christians to have a theology of sacred space. Although one senses that the author understands the argument he wishes to advance it is not satisfactorily expressed here.
