"For very many this book of Mr. Geoffrey Webb's will be a Godsend." So penned Fr. Bede Jarrett, OP in the foreword of this invaluable title. This brief, but comprehensive work presents a supernatural approach to understanding the centre of Catholic life, the altar. Considered by many to be the "bible" on the subject of the altar, this book covers its historical development, form, symbolism, and vesting. It also addresses the appointments of the altar, such as the cross, candles, use of flowers and reliquaries.

Continuing the words of Fr. Jarrett: ".It presents to us in its unending formulas the ritual of Redemption. It does not aim at imposing the dead hand of antiquarianism on the adornment of the altar. It deals with the decrees of the Congregation that are in force, some directive, some perceptive, but only such as are of value today.

This book is also an invaluable resource from a practical aspect, as it demonstrates how to construct a proper altar that conforms to the Church's prescriptions and ideals without exhausting the parish coffers.

Webb's magnificently composed text is complimented with several pictorial examples of altars and line drawings that demonstrate how to implement what he outlines.

A timeless classic, this book will be of general interest to any Catholic, lay or cleric, particularly church architects, liturgical artists, sacristans, those involved in liturgical functions, altar societies, florists, altar vesture manufactures, as well as religion teachers for all ages.
