The Church of the Transfiguration is a contemporary expression of fourth-century basilican architecture. The more than 200 photographs in this book reveal the church's extensive art program: a rich blend of mosaics, frescoes, and sculpted bronze, glass, and stone. This building is the liturgical home of the Community of Jesus, an ecumenical Christian community in the Benedictine monastic tradition that has resided on the shores of Cape, Cod, Massachusetts, for over forty years. The church stands as a visible sign of God's saving action in redeeming humanity, points to the coming of Christ in glory, and gives testimony to the power of beauty to heal.

The Church of the Transfiguration is also the story of lives that were shaped by planning and building this church and the rhythm of the daily prayer life that takes place within its walls. The building and people together are one community's attempt to glorify God through worship, hospitality, a common life, and the creative arts.

Product Reviews for The Church of the Transfiguration

This is a stunning book with more than 200 impressive photographs printed on high-quality paper. It tells the story of the Church of the Transfiguration in Orleans, Massachusetts, the place of worship for the Community of Jesus, an ecumenical monastic community founded by two Episcopalians more than 60 years ago.

This coffee-table-sized book is intended to be about the beautiful Cape Cod church where the community gathers for worship several times each day. The Romanesque edifice contains breathtaking artwork and offers a peaceful atmosphere for worship. But the story of the community is as impressive as the photographs of the building.
