    Book details

Reflections on the role of the cathedral in contemporary society. On the one hand generally vast, hugely expensive to maintain, laden with traditional worship, on the other architectural treasures, loved by many, visited in droves by more tourists than pass through a parish church, what is their place in the unrolling future of the church? Contributions from a wide variety of perspectives, including Grace Davie (leading analyst of trends in the Church), Jeremy Fletcher (key liturgist), Michael Sadgrove (Dean of Durham) and John Inge (Bishop of Huntingdon).

Stephen Platten is Bishop of Wakefield, and a leading commentator on Church matters. He has written and edited many books, including Ink and Spirit.
