Full Product Description
Citing the influence of college campuses on megachurch architecture, Bratton examines the features that are a part of many megachurch complexes, including waterscapes, iconography, and outdoor art. Taking readers on a cross-country journey to over 200 churches, Brattontracesthe movement from the small parish building of the nineteenthcentury to the extensive complexes that form today's churchscapes. As she moves from church to church, Bratton describes howallthe church's spaces--buildings,greens, gardens, and gateways--togethershape its practices, name its beliefs, and norm its life together.Bratton's work offers the first historical and theological analysis of the church and itsphysical planners and planters. She demands that all of us look with new eyes at the ways the church may be innovative without being disruptive, a place of communitywithoutbecomingexclusive, and a site of abundancewithoutdecadence. The church-in-place mustconsider how its scapes and spaces reflectits sacred life.
