Full Product Description

For anyone looking for a searingly honest book of faith and the aftermath of the Great Way, Fierce Imaginings is insightful and shows the drastic impact of war on faith and families. Certain to change the way you see the world in a meaningful and in-depth way.

"This is the most searching and original book I have read about the impact of the First World War on the faith and the myths of this country." - Rowan Williams

From Rachel Mann, Canon Poet-in-Residence at Manchester cathedral, comes a lyrical and very personal story of remembrance, faith, family and identity shaped by the chaos and trauma wrought by the Great War and the flux in early twentieth century Europe. Rachel brilliantly explores the significance of the War to all of us today who live under its long shadow - our shared memories, culture and the symbols and relics that linger on all around us, as well as the influence of the Great War on her grandparents and how it echoed through her childhood in 1970s Britain discovering her authentic self in God, undergoing a change of sex and experiencing chronic illness and disability.

Fierce Imaginings by Rachel Mann was published by Darton Longman & Todd in March 2017 and is our 7672nd best seller. The ISBN for Fierce Imaginings is 9780232532784.
