Historic Churches free pdf An affectionate, entertaining and informative guide to New Zealand's early churches, from quaint country churches and small school chapels, to grand cathedrals and curious synagogues. Following on from the success of Historic Houses, writer Linda and photographer Robert Burgess travel the length and breadth of New Zealand visiting over 60 historic, unique, quirky, architecturally significant, weather-beaten, downtown, and back-of-beyond churches. Along the way they encounter the architects, ministers, missionaries and personalities with a story to tell. They also discover the tragic links, battles fought, injustices and even murders the churches bore witness to over the decades. Historic Churches features handsome photographs of the churches featured, inside and out, accompanying an engaging text that will take you on a rich and colourful journey.
