The editors emphasized "recent" because church work had remained for the most part Gothic in character up until the 20th century. These newer churches selected for this volume were varied, embracing Established, Nonconformist, and Roman Catholic churches. Some of the churches included are Convent Chapel in Braintree, Cowley Church in Oxford, St. James Church in Sutton, St. Benedict's Church in Birmingham, and All Saints Church in Ealing. Some chapters focus on particular details of a church, such as choir stalls and screen, or a spire, or panels for the organ, or a window. Beautifully photographed and documented.
