I am happy to re-post my thoughts about this excellent book, originally
written for the Orthodox Forum:
Father Deacon Dimitri of Holy Virgin Cathedral in San Francisco
announced the publication of the Cathedral's 75th Anniversary Book,
I just received my copy.
It is a magnificent full-color highest-quality illustrated hardbound
book with dust jacket, 64 pages, 11 1/2 inches long by 9 inches tall.
Chapter titles include: The Beginning; The Vision; Heaven on Earth; A
Saint (St. John of San Francisco); Pastors; Worship - The Heart of
Cathedral. The color photography is spectacular. I highly recommend
