Richly illustrated, The Symbols of the Church shows that the language of symbols can be more universal than the language of words in expressing faith. Over 200 full-color photographs and illustrations depict a variety of symbols that range from bells to architecture to liturgical vestments. Commentary, poetry, scriptural text, prayers, musical excerpts, and quotes from well-known persons offer insight into the meaning and history of these symbols.
Organized in three parts (Symbols of the Christian World, Church Symbolism, and Permanent Church Signs), it offers a beautiful and thoughtful introduction to a wide range of Christian symbols. Also includes very helpful glossaries, a text index, and an index to illustrations.
