"Contemporary Church Architecture is worth buying for Heathcote?s compressed history." (Building Design, Cover date 22nd June) "This book explores the development of contemporary church design by looking at how the rational and the sacred can be reconciled and inform one another." (Church Building, July/August 2007) "Heathcote?s text is judicious and remarkably comprehensive." (Architects Journal, Thursday 12th July 2007) "With stunning photographs, some full-page, this work really shows off the architecture of each building." (Methodist Recorder , cover date 30th August 2007) ??opulently extravagant, with some of the most beautiful images of contemporary churches I have seen.? (Church Times, Friday 15th February 2008)
