A handpicked selection of Britain's most interesting diminutive churches, written in an amusing, accessible style to appeal to modern readers. Puts the spotlight on Britain's tiniest churches for the first time and uncovers their fascinating historical background. Includes up-to-date practical information on getting to each tiny church via public transport. Highlights special architectural features to look out for, all of which are represented by closeup color photos. Beautifully presented in full color throughout, the book uncovers 60 of the loveliest and most diminutive places of worship in Britain, many of which are known only to locals. Each church is so tiny that fewer than 50 people could fit comfortably inside, each is open to the public, and many boast fabulous wall paintings, stained glass, and artworks as well as fascinating histories. Representing a unique slice of British local history and attitudes, tiny churches are the great survivors of the world. Still standing after centuries of religious unrest and the meddling of the Victorian "church improvers," they live on in this most irreligious of centuries, scattered all over Britain. Each entry features information on how and when to visit the church, a concise round-up of its history, and details of any must-see architectural features.

Whether you are rich or poor, black or white, religious or nonreligious, life is challenging. We have daily struggles, and how we deal with those struggles defines us and determines the type of people we are. Life is not meant to be dealt on our own. The Holy Spirit was given to Christians to guide, direct, educate, encourage, and help with daily struggles. Fresh Fruit is a collection of writings that show how the Holy Spirit gives help and encouragement as we face the everyday problems of life. There are nine categories, one for each fruit. Each category has eight compositions tackling life issues. Without recognizing the importance of the Holy Spirit in our lives, we are not fully experiencing all that God offers us. We become spiritually healthier by manifesting the fruit of the Holy Spirit in every situation. Through this fruit, we can show who God is and hopefully bring others to salvation.

This book examines and describes for the general reader the life and characteristics of the churches which flourished in Scotland between the Reformation and the mid-20th century. It will help both amateur and professional historians to understand the different denominations, and provides background to, and context for, their own research. Church influence on society has been particularly strong in Scotland and church records are a major source of pre-1844 information, but no recent book deals adequately with the church background. Here, the author explores how churches developed in, and interacted with, society. An overview of the churches of Scotland from the Reformation to 1960 is followed by a brief examination of each denomination including doctrinal issues, worship, organization, social and demographic factors, and mapping to show the geographical strengths of particular groups.

They bought and reconstructed a ruined farmhouse in the Italian countryside, but rebuilding the farmhouse is just one part of their adventure. The real story is about the lure of Italy-the food and wine, the seasons and storms, the history, culture, and art, the festivals and traditions, the land and its field stones and above all, the people.In addition to recounting the finding and reconstru.
