Pocket Guide to How to Read A Church
Format: Paperback|Change
Price:£25.00+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime

I have been watching the re-runs of the BBC 4 programmes on 'how to read a church' and found Richard Taylor a delight; his enthusiasm, and the sheer delight in what he clearly loves was quite contagious. I have bought the pocket version of his book and have already been visiting some of the churches he cites in Norfolk and Suffolk. It is fascinating to look with 'different eyes'and to have gained a greater appreciation of the artefacts, structures and works of art that I might otherwise not have noticed or indeed not understood. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the richness of our inheritance, of magnificent architecture, story, myth, and art and perhaps like me seeing it with 'new eyes'.

The pocket guide does it what it says; it explains church ornaments, history and architecture in simple , straightforward language. The guide is convenient as I can carry it around with me. Good illustrations. Non academic.

The book gives a real insight into aspects of church architecture and furnishings that you might not previously have thought to be of any great significance.

This is in the glove compartment of the car, a very useful book. We also have the hard back copy to read at home.

Not sure the book stayed to the theme that well and the body of the text was about Staints and the images associated with them

Answers those many questions when you visit churches. Will be with us whenever we go walking or travelling in the car.
