Reaching Up to God is an inspirational book on the creation of The Church, from conception to construction to completion.
The vivid window photography is of extraordinary quality and reveals details of the artistry not discernable from the nave of The Church. All of the 36 stained glass windows are pictured, along with over 100 Bible stories they depict.
There are details about the inspiration for the exterior and interior designs of The Church, as well as the use of modern architectural, engineering and construction techniques, without which our Gothic-style Church would have required 50 years or more to construct, if at all.
