Redemptive Commercialism

One of the joys of my life is belonging to a church where “those who went before” appreciated Christian art and Christian symbolism – to the degree that they integrated it into their architecture. To have done so in a theologically rational way is no mean accomplishment within the Reformed tradition of churches.

To capture some of this, I published a book (the cover of which is pictured here). And, while I can’t deny the ego as a motivator, there is no personal financial gain involved. Proceeds of the sale benefit the church. Details at my website.

I can vouch that this is a worthwhile purchase. The book is historically informed, contextually sensitive, and archaeologically precise. There is no other place to go for the delicious details and underestimated significance on this rare Byzanto-Presbyterian temple!
