  • Contributor: Korvemaker, Frank; Easton, Larry

    This highly-anticipated companion volume to the best-selling Legacy of Stone: Saskatchewan's Stone Buildings, combines brilliant colour images of the buildings people worship in with the fascinating stories of those places and people. Legacy of Worship profiles over 60 rural churches, representing 15 spiritual denominations. Rural religious gathering places often display the work of folk artists and craftspeople, as well as that of professional artists and architects; they are the last repository of primitive art and such crafts as weaving, metal-smithing, needlework and furniture making. The book presents sacred places that illustrate how beauty in any form inspires and nurtures the soul. It demonstrates the universal, eternal need for art and beauty, and the importance of valuing and protecting the religious heritage so important to our identity and our proud place in Canada.
