Form and Function in Church Architecture Aug 5, 2007
I have recently read two other of James F. White's works. This is a very practical analysis of the theological function behind the various historical forms of church architecture. His emphasis is on the font, altar, and pulpit in various treatments of worship space. He limits himself to the main sanctury. Historical development is focused on the understanding of present practice. He gives perspective on Eastern and Western traditions, the American developments in the West, recent studies of Early Christianity, and recent changes due to Pentecostal theology. He is a defender of lay involvement in worship with an emphasis on the work of worship in liturgy. This is an easy read, and a good introduction to his other works on worship.
