Product Description

The United States has more houses of worshiop than any other country in the world: churches, synagogues, temples, mosques, and meeting houses. This book profiles 500 of these wonderfully varied places--each one a powerful living symbol of the religious freedom on which the nation was founded. You will find vivid details about the origin, architectural features, and social history of each structure, plus information on the patterns of religious settlement in every state. With hundreds of photographs of these distinctive buildings--manylisted in the National Register of Historic Places--this book presents a fascinating portrait of the American spiritual landscape and the faith that sustains it.
