Timothy Brunk
The Sacraments and Consumer Culture

"What does consumerism have to do with the sacraments? We live in cultures where our senses of meaning, identity, and purpose are often found in what we purchase. Apart from the question of hedonism, there is the question of how we orient ourselves in an environment in which we end up marketing our very selves. In this book, Timothy Brunk examines how this consumer culture has had a corrosive effect on the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church. He also assesses how sacramental worship can provide resources for responsible Christian discipleship in today's consumer culture."

Richard Vosko
Art and Architecture for Congregational Worship: The Search for a
Common Ground

"After addressing polarizing issues germane today the book launches into topics
pertaining to the art of ritual making, beauty, art, and architecture. It explores how to
balance traditional and modern forms to create egalitarian places of worship. Future
houses of worship are envisioned as “servant” buildings where communities will
gather to pray and take care of one another.
