‘And Did Those Feet’ Patrick’s latest Book published April 2021

April 28th, 2021   •   Uncategorised   •   no comments   

‘And Did Those Feet’ tells the story of the English Church from its earliest times to 2020. Having taken root in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, it emerged in the medieval world amidst poverty, pandemics and power struggles, and not free from abuses. We see here its struggles during the Reformation, leading to an English Bible and Prayer Book, and the virtual banishment of Roman Catholicism for three hundred years. We see the spawning of new forms of Protestantism, inimical to the Crown, with the emergence of Quakers, Independents and the Methodists among many others.

Patrick Whitworth charts both the contribution and shortcomings of the English Church. An extraordinary story well told, surely this will remain the standard work on the Church in England for many years to come. For more information and to order please go to the books section of this site.

Irenaeus). What issues do we face in

personal development and realising our

potential? What struggles do we face?

Christ and in the Church?
