"Beauty meets grace in Detroit’s historic churches"
by Kathy Schiffer
This article examines “Detroit’s Historic Places of Worship” released in September 2012 by Wayne State University Press. The book includes profiles of 37 houses of worship, representing eight denominations and nearly 150 years of history. Authors Marla O. Collum, Barbara E. Krueger and Dorothy Kostuch incorporate information from public resources, church archives, and oral histories provided by clergy, parishioners, and church staff. Some of the churches are no longer used by their original faith communities. The original Temple Beth-El with its saucer-shaped painted dome, is now the Bonstelle Theatre at Wayne State University.
