Why the author wrote this book:
The history of Christianity in England has largely formed today's western culture. I wanted to share this inheritance and at the same time weave a story of the sanctity of life, the questions of belief, the power of God's actions among us in the past and the present. I have been blessed to visit this beautiful country and worship in her historic churches, in London and in the countryside and to share these impressions as well.
