    Book details


In this book Mark Torgerson shows how 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 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 S?vik. Finally, he addresses the future of church architecture as congregations are buffeted by the twin forces of liturgical change and postmodernism.An Architecture of Immanencewill interest architects, liturgists, and all Christians who seek to read the sacred spaces of the recent past.

Mark A Torgerson is Associate Professor of Worship Arts at Judson College, Illinois, USA. An ordained minister in the Evangelical Covenant Church, he has a lifelong interest in the concept of sacred space.
