Paperback.  First edition.  ‘In Modern Art in English Churches Michael Day attempts to discover and examine visual works of art of the twentieth century which are to be found in English churches and cathedrals. The works of art he has chosen to discuss are, as he says, ‘not only worth looking at but .. . fulfil their primary purpose of turning minds and imaginations towards God’. The main aim of the book is to show the importance of the visual arts to our experience of Christianity, and it is the author’s hope that it will help the reader extend his knowledge of the Christian artistic heritage into the present century and also deepen his awareness of the signs and symbols which point to the glory of God’.  Condition: very good.
