Over the span of my professional career, I have focused on religious architecture. Having done extensive research on the topic over the course of my career, this book stands out as the finest compilation on this building type. The projects and religious organizations are diverse. What they all have in common is the quality of design and the search for appropriateness in architecture for worship.
Nice coffee table book with a religious theme. The book is high quality and the various churches/buildings that are depicted by very well-done photographs. Really lots of great pictures of traditional, contemporary, offbeat and somewhat strange churches. Says lots about man's religious culture.
a nice picture book but very little info that would help in building a church. I do not recommend this book if you need information about construction, architecture, or selecting a builder. Not a practical handbook.
