Informed and inspired by the past, the Church of Ireland looks forward with confidence and eager expectation to the future.
This illustrated book presents its rich heritage and history in an attractive contemporary style that will appeal to every generation. It reveals at the same time the modern presence of the Church in every diocese.
This publication comprises the work of over sixty historians, editors and photographers from all over Ireland with a diverse range of interests and approaches. Each tells the story of the Church in his or her own way. The variety of this material reflects the diversity within the Church itself. This volume achieves the remarkable task of covering every parish or union/group of parishes, with illustrations of over two thirds of all the churches.
The Church of Ireland: an illustrated history is a record of the past with an invitation to reflect on the life of the Church in the twenty-first century.
