What is this place we call England? What does it mean to be English? What, indeed, does it mean to be the "Church of England"?

Developing the work advanced in his critically acclaimed previous book, Parish: An Anglican Theology of Place, and drawing deeply on his experience of the Wiltshire landscape, English Grounds presents a series of personal essays that explore deep questions around church, place, nature, heritage and Englishness.

Written in vividly evocative and lyrical style, Andrew Rumsey's essays challenge us to think more deeply about the place of the Church in the consciousness of the English, and the place of England in the consciousness of the Church.

Andrew Rumsey

The Rt Reverend Dr Andrew Rumsey is Bishop of Ramsbury. His previous publications include Parish: An Anglican Theology of Place (SCM Press, 2017) and Strangely Warmed (Continuum, 2010), endorsed by, among others, Ian Hislop and Tom Wright. Andrew is a contributor to the Church Times, a regular speaker at the Greenbelt Festival and a former trustee of Third Way magazine.

"This is a marvellous book, lit by faith, love and imagination - and by the beauty of Andrew Rumsey's gorgeous writing. It is a celebration of the landscape its author so fully inhabits - and a sequence of meditations on the complexities of finding a communal identity in the 21st century. Deeply rooted in both physical and spiritual worlds, English Grounds offers hope and inspiration to every reader." -- Erica Wagner, contributing writer for the New Statesman, and former literary editor of the Times
