The photographs are plentiful and show a wide variety of religions and of worship spaces Many are interior, in fact the book emphasizes the insides of the churches with good architectural critiques I would have appreciated a walk through coverage in the photographs For example, the grounds approaching the entry, the narthex or lobby areas, the seating and then the altars However, the close up views of features like stained glass and woodwork aree exceptional.
