Share Article

Stephen Cox has written in-depth study of San Diego’s religious and artistic heritage

Changing and Remaining is the story of a major cultural landmark of Southern California—All Saints’ Episcopal Church, a unique institution in the unique neighborhood of Hillcrest, San Diego. The book offers one of the most complete investigations ever made of the history of an American church.

All Saints’ ability to survive and flourish despite difficulties of many kinds provides important insights into the social dynamics of American Christianity. The story of All Saints’ parish gains added significance from the aesthetic importance of its church building, which in 2012 celebrates the centennial of its construction. Designed by the important architects William Sterling Hebbard and Carleton Monroe Winslow, and with stained glass by the Judson Studios, All Saints’ is an artistic monument. Changing and Remaining provides a full architectural and artistic analysis and offers many historic photos of the church and its people.
