No Place for God In No Place for God, Doorly traces the principles of modern architecture to the ideas of space that spread rapidly during the twentieth century. She sees a parallel between the desacralization of the heavens, and consequently of our churches, and the mass inward search for a God of one's own. This double movement away from the transcendent God, who reveals himself to man through Scripture and tradition, and toward an inner truth relevant only to oneself has emptied our churches, and the worship that takes place within them, of the majesty and beauty that once inspired reverence in both believers and unbelievers alike.
