Following his literary debut with Bed of Nails, Peter Owen - Jones now puts the spotlight on the village church in this feisty diary recalling a year as Rector of three parishes in rural Cambridgeshire. Far from a cosy rural idyll, what he describes is a grinding existence at the beck and call of his parishioners who often have conflicting expectations of the church, depending on whether its traditional culture is crucial to them or entirely alien. All the while he, like many others in his position, is struggling to support a wife and four children on a meagre stipend, and to juggle the constant demands which leave little or no time for family life yet require him to set an example of model citizenship. Written with real literary panache, this absorbing personal account touches on passions as diverse as environmental issues, how the church runs and promotes itself, what it means to experience God and the place of Christianity at the turn of the millennium. In it Peter Owen - Jones paints a revelatory picture of a church going through hell, unsure whether and in what form its resurrection might take place.
