black titles spine; illustrated throughout with black and white and colour drawings reproduced directly from Bishop Peter's sketchbook; (From the Archbishop of Canterbury's Commendation) : "To spend twenty whole weeks in a single year visiting parishes, in addition to his other duties, has been an extraordinary achievement, and I know of no other bishop in living memory who has attempted such an enterprise. Bishop Peter's Pilgrimage Diary is a wonderful and very readable story - full of humour, compassion and faith. It isa book which I believe will be a great encouragement to all who read it."; & (from the foreword by the Prince of Wales) : "How wonderful that a bishop should make a pilgrimage through his diocese! Bishop Peter's love for the churches and people of Norfolk shines out through the pages of his informative and entertaining diary. It is a remarkable story of a crowded year visiting every part of the Diocese of Norwich, and a remarkable achievement too. As Patron of the Norfolk Churches Trust, I share his enthusiasm for. the magnificent churches of East Anglia, as well as his determination that we should do all in our power to keep this unique national treasure in good order for the benefit of future generations. I very much hope that the publication of this diary will inspire others with a sense of wonder and gratitude for the simple faith and intuitive craftsmanship of the people who built these unique monuments to the glory of God."; inscription on pre-title page reads - "For Eileen from +Peter Norvic:"; also illustrated by b/w. map & itinary of pilgrimage; 257 pages.
