Through the seasons, Doug Ohman has traveled to every corner of Minnesota to document the beauty of the state's most evocative church structures of present and past. Here Ohman showcases one hundred of his most exquisite interior and exterior shots with a colorful survey of a broad range of architecture.
In the "sure-handed, honest language" (New York Times) for which he is renowned, Hassler reflects on his own spirituality and his evolving faith in the church and its people. A graceful complement to Ohman's images, Hassler's remembrances chronicle how one's connection with these spiritual grounds grows and changes with the milestones of life.
Churches of Minnesota is the second book in the Minnesota Byways series, a sumptuous photographic survey showcasing the state's classic architectural icons. Forthcoming books include Courthouses of Minnesota, Schoolhouses of Minnesota, and Cabins of Minnesota.
