Carl J. Christensen Jr. and Pixie Christensen present sixty-five captivating and historically significant structures through exquisite watercolor illustrations. Each illustration is accompanied by a brief summary and handcrafted map. Ranging from stately edifices of brick and stone located in urban centers to more humble wood-frame chapels in rural surroundings, the houses of faith shown in these pages have one important trait in common: They have all served as centers of cultural identity, spiritual comfort, and public service to the communities in which they arose. 9 x 10 inches, cloth bound. 192 pages and 82 color images.
