About the publication

How will it all end? Come, dear reader, and join with the good and the bad of the Diocese of Lindchester, as they navigate their way through the storms of 2016. What does the year hold in this best of times, this worst of times; this season of bake-offs and season of foodbanks; this Green spring of muscular theological hope and Lothlórien winter of hand-wringing theological despair? We will peep through many a stained glass window in pursuit of answers.

Will the new bishop dubbed Steve-angelical by his detractors impose the evils of management upon the timeless beauty of Anglicanism? Will dean Marion collude with him? Will archdeacon Matt be the next bishop of Barcup and what will Jane think of that? And will Freddie more lovely than a summer s day, though far less temperate finally find love and happiness?

Times are dark in this, the final volume of The Lindchester Chronicles. But we may yet glimpse a touch of radiance around the grubby edges of our characters. So let us soar as best we can on Anglican wings, towards those unseen Realms of Glory.


Unsure what to buy the Trollope devotee in your life for Christmas? Look no further than Catherine Fox's Acts and Omissions and Unseen Things Above for a refresher course not only in cathedral politics, but also a set of profound, although lightly drawn, insights into the contemporary Anglican communion.
