Historic First Lutheran Church of Pasadena, California, founded in 1892, constructed its third sanctuary in 1937 during the Great Depression. Despite the financial stresses of the day, no compromise was made in building the best and packing the building full of religious symbolism, both outside and in. To the discerning eye the building itself preaches a silent sermon, to which the author invites you to hear and see. Designated by the City of Pasadena as a Cultural Landmark Building in 2001, the unique building is widely recognized, without many people recognizing the true symbolic treasure it is. This book reveals that symbolic treasure.
