With its eighty-six duotone illustrations and a foreword by Kern Trembath (Assistant Chairman, Department of Theology, University of Notre Dame) this is a humorous look at churches in America by photographer Herman Krieger.
“Among the best examples of satire on the Internet.”
â€” J. Michael Raymond, Editor, Contemporary Satire
“This is a fun book of photos by a man with a keen eye. Many of the pics are gut-busting hilarious. The theme is religion but there is nothing here to offend the religious. I highly recommend Churches Ad Hoc: A Divine Comedy to every one.
â€” Guy P. Harrison, author of Race and Reality: What Everyone Should Know About Our Biological Diversity and 50 Reasons People Give for Believing in a God.
“Herman Krieger doesn’t preach to the choir. He has seen through the pious facades of a lot of churches.”
â€” San Jose Mercury News
“Herman Krieger has a good eye and a knack for taking an offbeat look at churches and their surroundings.”
â€” The Dallas Morning News
“This sometimes irreverent photo essay draws a variety of responses. Christians see devotion. Atheists see satire. Photographers see artistry.”

“I delighted in the photo captions. Composing them must have given you as much pleasure as reading them gave me. I browsed through them with both pleasure and amusement.”
