One Example of Why Beauty Matters

Dr. William Oddie speaks of the beginnings of his conversion from atheism:
As I stood in the middle of that majestic nave, and looked upwards, my entire life changed. It was borne in on me very powerfully that I had to ask myself a question: was it really possible that that was based on a lie? The answer was unavoidable: this great anthem in stone to the power and majesty of God could only be based on the truth: there was indeed a God, and nothing could for me ever be the same again.
For some reason I highly doubt he would've had the same experience looking around most modern churches today...
