A Good Debate on Church Architecture

There is a healthy and interesting discussion going on at The Gospel Coalition about the importance or lack of importance local churches should put upon the design of new structures.  Thus far, David Platt, Should Churches Spend Money on Nice Buildings?, and J.D. Greear, We Want to Stay Light and Mobile, Flexible and Ready have played down the significance of elaborate and usually costly structures, while Matthew Lee Anderson, Buildings Matter Because Bodies Matter, and David Gobel, Reforming Church Architecture, have argued for local congregations to rethink the plain box structures (think cheaper) that are being built more and more today.
