America's Church: Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception
Gregory W Tucker
$31.96 (Save $7.99)
[Hardback] Our Sunday Visitor (2000)
Gregory Tucker's metiiculous, colorful and fascinating account of the building of this monumental "national" chuch in Washington, D.C., is a testament to the movers and shakers who made it possible. It provides a fitting and well-deserved tribute to the countless American men, women and children who were ultimately the "builders." As hundreds of photographs show, this "national church" was built with a respect for the past -- and the Catholic traditions of art and architecture. Yet it was built with an eye toward the future -- and the millions of American Catholics who would come to worship within its massive walls.
