Reviews - What do customers think about Symbols of the Church?

Awaiting the digital edition  Oct 27, 2005
This booklet (it is just under fifty pages) packs enough information regarding Western Christian symbols for those doing embroidery or hand-drawn signs and banners. It is a good, quick survey of many symbols and their very general meanings. For the researcher, it is a good place to start exploring iconography, and a useful directory for reading Christian art.
Church publications and even embroidery shops with digital equipment look forward to the CD carrying the clipart and commentaries.
Not bad at all....  May 12, 2005
I bought this book wanting to learn more about symbolism and I found this book to be quite useful, good pictures, but nearly as informative as I wanted. Still a good reference book, but don't rely too heavily on it, if you want in depth explanations or stories behind the icons.
Symbols of the Church  Dec 9, 2002
As a person interested in chuch banner-making, I was rather disappointed. While there is a lot in this little book, the pictures were too tiny (about an inch high) to be very useful.
Very Thorough  Apr 5, 2002
Wow ! What a collection of sysbols.AND with explanations. For anyone who sews or makes church banners, this is a must have book. Glad I bought it.
Symbols of the Church  Jan 25, 2000
This is a wonderful little guide. It gives you many symbols and a brief explanation of their meaning. It's broken into sections for easier reference, i.e. symbols of the apostles, symbols of saints, crosses, etc. It also includes liturgical colors and seasons of the church year. I only wish it had more symbols defined! A very handy, quick reference, and a good place to start to find out what basic symbols really mean.
