Item description for Church Signs Across America by Steve Paulson & Pam Paulson...

Photographs of church signs from churches of every denomination across America.

From The Book Jacket
Church Signs Across America celebrates the wit, charm, and verse of church signs from every state in the U.S. At the same time reverent and witty, these signs offer fascinating glimpses into American life that are variously humorous, inspirational, kitschy, and kind-and occasionally all those things at once. After finding their inspiration for the book during a road trip from Florida to Alaska, husband and wife team Steve and Pam Paulson traveled to every corner of the country photographing the signs of churches large and small, and of every denomination.Among the gems uncovered over the course of the journey are puns, "Seven days without prayer makes one weak"; admonishments, "The Ten Commandments are not multiple choice"; family advice, "Families are like fudge . . . mostly sweet with a few nuts"; and sales pitches, "Looking for a lifeguard? Ours walks on water." Church Signs Across America includes photographs of American churches both imposing and humble, and it is as remarkable for its display of the diversity of American church architecture as it is for the variety of humor and inspiration displayed in the signs. Appealing to both churchgoers and drive-by appreciators of this uniquely American form of wit and wisdom, this inimitable book is sure to become an uplifting and amusing classic-a laugh from the belly as well as from the heart.

Reviews - What do customers think about Church Signs Across America?

Appropriate for all faiths and ages!!  Nov 24, 2008
It's sometimes a challenge to find gifts for mu husband's 87 year old mother, a devout charismatic Catholic with few material needs. Some are funny, some are thought provoking - a perfect gift to produce smiles to all.
Great Book  Jan 18, 2008
This is a wonderful "coffee table" book and quite the conversation piece, too. It makes you smile and laugh right out loud at the different church signs across the United States of America. It was a wonderful Christmas gift and arrived in a very timely manner.
Great Gift  Jan 18, 2008
I bought this as a gift for my conservative grandparents. I thought it was hilarious, but they took it seriously! They loved it! I think it would be a great coffee table book. Each sign is pictured along with the church and below is the city and state. Very interesting when comparing the sign with the state. Would definitely recommend this.
Fun Book!  Jan 7, 2008
This book was exactly what I wanted. Pictures of church signs on every page without commentary. The only words are at the bottom of each photo where it tells what city and state the photo was taken in.
It is a small, hardcover book that makes a great gift.
Some of the signs are inspiring and others are just, plain funny.
The pictures are decent, but beware the book is MADE IN CHINA. I would have concerns about children or animals getting a hold of the book and chewing on it. Customers should have been informed this book is Chinese made prior to purchase. For God's sake, can't we even produce books in this Country anymore?!
