"This sumptuous book presents a pilgrimage panorama of its past ten centuries, and its present of worship and mission by a community of clergy, staff and volunteers."
Lincolnshire Life, March 2011 (Book of the Month)
Described by John Ruskin as 'out and out the most precious piece of architecture in the British Isles and roughly speaking worth any two other cathedrals we have', Lincoln Cathedral, in its commanding location, is very much more than a priceless gem of ecclesiastical architecture. Today the Cathedral not only continues to serve its local and regional community as it has done for nearly ten centuries, but also projects its faith mission worldwide.
This richly illustrated new publication offers a fascinating panorama of Lincoln Cathedral past and present, revealing the extent to which it is deeply entwined with the history of England over nearly 1000 years, but also how it is sustained and renewed as a vibrant centre of worship and mission by a community of volunteers and skilled staff, making it a living entity.
Beautifully designed and produced, the book will be a volume to be treasured by every friend of, and visitor to, this precious, beautiful and dynamic spiritual foundation.
