Where Glory Dwells is a special type of autobiography, focusing on the authors experiences throughout his life of the atmosphere and mystery of churches and chapels. All religious communities have their sanctuaries, their holy places: they serve a need of the human heart. Christian sanctuaries speak of God and life with God. They say in buildings and spaces what Saint Augustine said in words: You have made us for yourself, Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in youthe son of God, who is the father is the truth and the life, by taking our nature became the way.
Ranging from faith to family life, from popular devotion to high art, Where Glory Dwells is a heart-warming and thought-provoking journey through sanctuaries both exalted and humble.
