Words of Life: Celebrating 50 Years of the Hesburgh Library's Message, Mural, and Meaning (Paperback)Bill Schmitt (author)
- We can order this
Schmitt begins with the Library's dedication day in 1964 and explores what the new building meant to Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C., who as president of Notre Dame played a key role in its construction and in defining its characteristics and place at Notre Dame. The book focuses especially on the building's best-known feature, the iconic mural named The Word of Life but better known to many as "Touchdown Jesus." Included in the book are numerous photos that transport the reader to the past and enhance an appreciation of the mural and the building for us today.
