The Sunday Times paperback bestseller and Waterstones Non-Fiction Book of the Month *Featuring a brand new chapter!* 'Never have the joys of exploring the churches and cathedrals of this country been so vividly conveyed as they are in this engaging and elegiac book.' - New Statesman **BOOK OF THE YEAR pick 2023** 'A delicious treat' - Financial Times **TRAVEL BOOK OF THE YEAR pick 2023** 'A charming odyssey' - The Times 'A wonderful book; thoughtful and challenging' - Daily Telegraph ***** 'A beautiful book' - Gabriel Byrne 'Beautiful and brilliant. I loved it' - Fergus Butler-Gallie From the author of A Tomb With a View - Scottish Non-Fiction book of the Year Churches are all around us. Their steeples remain landmarks in our towns, villages and cities, even as their influence and authority has waned. They contain art and architectural wonders - one huge gallery scattered, like a handful of jewels, across these isles. Award-winning writer Peter Ross sets out to tell their stories, and through them a story of Britain. Join him as he visits the unassuming Norfolk church which contains a disturbing secret, and London's mighty cathedrals with their histories of fire and love. Meet cats and bats, monks and druids, angels of oak and steel. Steeple Chasing, though it sometimes strikes an elegiac note, is a song of praise. It celebrates churches for their beauty and meaning, and for the tales they tell. It is about people as much as place, flesh and bone not just flint and stone. From the painted hells of Surrey to the holy wells of Wales, consider this a travel book . . . with bells on. Praise for Peter Ross 'Ross is a wonderfully evocative writer, deftly capturing a sense of place and history, while bringing a deep humanity to his subject. He has written a delightful book.' - The Guardian 'Fascinating . . . Ross makes a likeably idiosyncratic guide and one finishes the book feeling strangely optimistic about the inevitable.' - The Observer 'The author's humanity has acted as a beacon of light in the darkness.' - The Sunday Times… (mais)

An affectionate snapshot of Britain's churches and the people who made, use and care for them. He begins his recorded travels in lockdown and the contemporary features across the book. The churches he visits and the people he meets are satisfyingly varied. There is open acceptance that those who visit churches are not necessarily religious and he is open minded in encountering those people. The chapters are grouped by theme, rather than area or age. I've been to some of the churches, others are now on my list. ( )
