Goodall has a superb eye for the exquisite and eccentric detail that makes English parish churches unique in contents and thus in character. His God is truly in the small things as well as the grand. * Sir Simon Jenkins *
This is an important book at a crucial time. These treasures are under threat in a looming heritage crisis as great as that which affected the country house in the twentieth century. What might seem a comfort read is, in the hands of John Goodall, a wakeup call - both to the Church authorities and to those within the localities - that some hard decisions will have to be made if these treasures are to survive the twenty-first century. * Sir Roy Strong *
Parish Church Treasures is the perfect church guide. Written chronologically, revealing the enormous antiquity, origins and fascinating stories of our English churches, and with riveting examples and illustrations, it will make church visiting even more enjoyable. A masterly and much-needed volume. * Dame Fiona Reynolds *
An elegant and erudite guide to the often hidden treasures of English parish churches * Loyd Grossman *
John Goodall is without question the greatest writer on medieval architecture today. His look at the parish churches of England is a fascinating examination of our past and our achievements. This book is a must. * Jools Holland *
A gorgeous book * The Journal of Stained Glass *
