The Church of the Transfiguration Book

The Church of the Transfiguration Book

The Church of the Transfiguration on the shores of Cape Cod Bay, is a contemporary expression of the architectural style of fourth-century Christian basilicas. As the church of a monastic community in the Benedictine tradition, the Church of the Transfiguration is dedicated to our Savior, as revealed in the glorious light of his Transfiguration on Mount Tabor, where heaven and earth met, and Christ’s divinity was revealed to humankind. Members of the Community of Jesus, together with artists from Germany, Italy, France, Ireland, and the United States translates the story of salvation through carved wood and stone, mosaic and fresco images, and bronze and glass sculpture, recounting stories from the life of Christ, and the actions of those who came before and prepared the way. Standing as a permanent testimony to the love and faithfulness of God, the church also reflects an essential part of the gospel message, that in Christ, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, it is possible for our lives to be transformed more and more into the likeness of Christ. This book tells the story of how the church was built, the lives that were shaped by that process, and the daily prayer that takes place within its walls.
