Liturgical Press, 1999 - 255 Seiten
"This revised, enlarged edition of Richard Giles' handbook on the design and use of church buildings will be widely welcomed. Eminently knowledgeable and profoundly theological, Re-pitching the Tent offers at the same time a hands-on practical guide to the entire process of reordering and furnishing the places where we worship, from the initial idea to the final completion." "Illustrated with many new colour and black and white photographs, this essential guide will transform the way we regard the interior and exterior of our church buildings, enabling us to see them afresh as a vital part of mission strategy."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
