Vol. 51, No. 1: Special Theme Issue: Materials of the Sacred

How does the very substance of religious art and architecture convey a sense of the holy? When we choose stone, wood, glass, metal, paint, tile, or any of the materials available to us, how does it help create a sacred place? How do sustainable materials express our love and stewardship of God’s creation? This issue will explore the use of materials—traditional and cutting edge—to bring our sacred places into being.
