The Suburban Church

Gretchen Buggeln

University of Minnesota Press

Describes the practice and meaning of worship for postwar suburbanites and how modernity, liturgical innovation, and the theological understanding and preferences of both architect and client shaped sanctuaries. Formality (although modern in design) persisted through the 1950s while congregations moved towards the “gathered church” or “church in the round.”
