Item Description...
Overview
Baroque, Gothic, Romanesque, Greek. These traditional architectural styles are easily recognizable both in public buildings and especially in houses of worship. Each has a particular influence on sacred space, and all tend to highlight the utter transcendence of God. In An Architecture of Immanence Mark Torgerson asserts that modern architecture has heavily influenced the construction of new sacred spaces, producing a new way of building that emphasizes God's coming near to us. Torgerson begins by discussing a proper understanding of God's transcendence and immanence and showing how church architecture has traditionally interpreted these key concepts. He then traces the theological roots of immanence's priority from liberal theology and liturgical innovation to modern architecture. Next, Torgerson illustrates this new architecture of immanence through particular practitioners, focusing especially on the work of theologically savvy architect Edward Anders SAvik. Finally, he addresses the future of church architecture as congregations are buffeted by the twin forces of liturgical change and postmodernism. A celebration and exploration of the modern conception of sacred space, An Architecture of Immanence will interest architects, liturgists, and all Christians who seek to read the sacred spaces of the recent past.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
20th Century Chirch Architecture finally explained.  Dec 30, 2009
Finally, a book that gives an understanding of church architecture in balance with the changes in emphasis in liturgical practice. This book was a pleasant surprise. My only complaint and it is a small one is that he falls short in projections for the future... but that is always hard to predict and now at the end of the forst decade of the 21st Century, I think he could have said more.
