With pellucid clarity Edward Norman expounds central truths of the Christian religion in a way that is both traditional but entirely radical It is after all the truth that sets us free Here is a sequel to Continuum s highly successful book Out of the Depths In this new book however Norman has written a brilliant new introduction worthy of a Crockford s preface in which he castigates reductionists and woolly minded liberals The truths of Christianity are eternal verities Orthodoxy is the highest form of radicalism As the Christian churches tear themselves apart on issues such as gay clergy and single sex marriages Norman s message will be increasingly understood and appreciated, This is the first book in decades to study the ways in which English Catholics asserted their faith in the years following the Reformation and how their assertion of faith forced them into the position of a rejected minority, Caused a storm when it was first published but now in the words of Archbishop David Hope should be seen as a refreshing statement which the Church is crying out for An Anglican Catechism puts into the hands of anyone seeking to extend knowledge of the Church of England a definitive account of the teachings of the Church Edward Norman has produced a statement of faith at a time when our understanding has been clouded by the prevalence of secular modes of thought, The grandeur of St Peter s the Baroque ecstasy of the churches at Cholula in Mexico the intimate peace of Fairford Church in Gloucestershire Throughout the world amidst the increasing materialism of largely secular societies churches attract travellers tourists historians and worshippers as almost never before The reasons for this apparent paradox are not difficult to see and they point to the widespread appeal of this spectacularly illustrated book The clarity knowledge and insight of Edward Norman s chronological survey are supported and enhanced by a brilliantly researched collection of illustrations and photographs The result is a perfect mix between the most loved master buildings from Hagia Sophia to Tokyo Cathedral and the freshness of the less familiar a mission church in Paraguay a Baroque shrine in Goa And we see how every age has found its own way of expressing its particular vision down to modern times the great age of Christian expansion when the initiative seems to be shifting away from Europe to South America and Africa and art has nowhere been more fluently and movingly conveyed
