"The book on the church"

SEE THE ARTICLE The book on the church, by Vicki Bennington, at the Telegraph of Alton, Illinois:
“The Puritans took art out of churches making many of them look like an assembly hall,” Faherty said. “These Catholic churches lead us to see all beauty.”...

Faherty and Abeln both wrote up lists of churches to feature, and then worked together to come up with the final list...

In the end, Abeln submitted about 659 photographs, which included 46 churches, chapels and shrines. About 286 of the photos were used featuring 40 churches that made it into the final book.
From a book review of Catholic St. Louis: A Pictorial History.
