Product Description

Soul Sanctuary is the first illustrated gift book to capture the spiritual dimension of the black church and the pride and dignity that prevail within the churchgoing family.

This powerful collection of photographs shows worship services taking place in all seasons and involving the young and old of many denominations, including Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, Pentecostal/Holiness, and nondenominational. The churches featured vary from small rural and urban storefronts to inner-city and suburban megachurches.

Soul Sanctuary captures the spirit of the black church through arresting images of congregants' facial expressions and body language, their uniforms and dress, and the dignity of their worship. Baptisms, weddings, funerals, annual day celebrations, ecstatic soloists, choir directors, prophetic preachers, angelic liturgical dancers, and peaceful moments of prayer and praise are captured in Johnson's intimate photographs.
