Building Faith

A Sociology of Religious Structures

Robert Brenneman and Brian J. Miller

  • Combines sociological theory and the empirical method in order to understand the impact of physical structures on the religious groups who build them
  • Demonstrates how religious buildings shape the subjectivities of those who gather and worship there
  • Casts light on how important religious buildings are to not only to the communities that worship in them, but even those that live close to them
