Overview

Churches of Nova Scotia by Robert Tuck

Churches of Nova Scotia is as much a human interest book as it is about ecclesiastical buildings. Both text and photographs tell the story of more than 30 Nova Scotia churches, but in the telling, the relationship between the interior life and history of the churches and the exterior and architecture of the church buildings is explored. The book is well balanced, containing a selection of churches from all parts of the province and representing a variety of denominational and ethnic identities, time periods, and architectural styles.
