    This was an interesting over sized coffee table book I picked up from As the title suggests, it is on churches The author chooses over 50 churches and gives each church about 2 pages of photographs and text about that church The book has an interesting design, the front cover does not open like a regular book, but like a set of doors.The selection of churches is diverse and ecclectic Baptist Churches, Catholic Churches, Protestant Churches, Mormon churches and Quaker meeting houses can all be found inside Each church has beautiful photos about it, and a bit of the history that went into that particular church I found many of the churches to be quite beautiful, others I could not see the attraction.Rather than describe each church, I have listed a few of my favorites The Borgund Stave church of Norway is in the book The Norwegian churches have a definite look of their own, and only a few dozen such churches remain It was nice to see an example of one.Many churches and Cathedrals that I saw in Florence, Italy are herein The Baptistry of San Giovanni, Santa Croce, and Santa Maria del Fiore Il Duomo all look beautiful St Peters and the Sistine Chapel from the Vatican are here, with a wonderful two page layout of the famous ceiling of the Sistine Chapel...
