THE relationship between Anglican clergy and their parishioners over a period of 100 years is explored by Robert Lee in Rural Society and the Anglican Clergy, 1815-1914: Encountering and managing the poor. He covers tithes, popular culture, dissent, education, and law and order, focusing mainly on Norfolk and its people (Boydell Press, £45; 978-1-84383-202-7).
The centenary of Bonhoeffer’s birth fell last year. Keith Clement has written a short study, investigating the links between Bonhoeffer and Britain. It is illustrated with black and white photographs throughout, and is published by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (£14.95; 0-85169-307-5).
