Reflecting occasions of untrammeled religion and non secular values, Martha Dickson's Anchors of religion supplies a pictorial assessment of a hundred forty five often late-nineteenth century wood church buildings situated in southern Alabama, Mississippi, and all through Florida. The church buildings featured, which span over 100 years of historical past, embrace the indomitable spiritual spirit in their developers. Anchors of religion is greater than only a pictorial encyclopedia, besides the fact that. The author's descriptions and pictures offer unique information regarding either the structure of those homes of worship and the similar historical past, from the founding of those associations to their present state.

Among the jewels featured in Anchors of religion, Dickson strains the Presbyterian Church of Union Church, Mississippi the entire as far back as its Gaelic-speaking Scottish Presbyterian immigrants from North Carolina. the writer tells the tale of the modest begin of the East Hill Baptist Church Chapel in Tallahassee, whose congregation shaped itself via assembly in a single another's homes because of global battle II. The special information of the bizarre "house of cards"-like facade of Hatchechubbee United Methodist Church in Hatchechubbee, Alabama, and the chippie Gothic type of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Merritt Island, Florida show the architectural area of expertise of a few Southern areas of worship.

From Greek Revival to Victorian Gothic, Dickson is helping upload to the certainty of non secular religion within the rural South during the structure and background of its many surviving wood churches.
