About Book

What is a Mark of the Beast waistcoat? Why did John Milton hate bishops? How does a Monsignor tear his postage stamps? And what does a congregation do when the Vicar announces that he is God?

These and a hundred similar questions are answered by this anthology, which ranges from fragments of church history to reflections on architecture, from scenes of parochial life to serious theology, from saints like George Herbert to eccentrics like the Vicar of Stiffkey.
