English Grounds A Pastoral Journal

Andrew Rumsey

“This is a marvellous book, lit by faith, love and imagination – and by the beauty of Andrew Rumsey’s gorgeous writing. It is a celebration of the landscape its author so fully inhabits –  and a sequence of meditations on the complexities of finding a communal identity in the 21st century. Deeply rooted in both physical and spiritual worlds, English Grounds offers hope and inspiration to every reader” Erica Wagner


“This delightful collection of beautifully composed reflections and observations exploring faith, identify and place will absorb any reader. Bishop Andrew writes about his travels and encounters around Dorset and Wiltshire and captures the essence of the Church of England’s vision to present in every community, even in our secular times. It reminded me of my days as an archdeacon in rural Somerset,  often admiring the resilience of local churches lovingly serving their parish and gently pointing to God. You will be heartened, touched and refreshed by this book during short winter days! ”
