Signing set for ‘Houses of Worship'

Schacter said the book includes 200 photographs of churches, synagogues and mosques, as well as Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh and Baha'i temples, in the United States and Canada. It also includes interviews with five religious leaders on the significance of a house of worship to the practice and experience of faith.

“‘Houses of Worship' is my attempt to portray the visible evidence of an invisible thing — religious faith,” he said.
