LifeWay implosion: How does the tower's namesake feel?

The redevelopment of the swath of downtown property that runs from Broadway to Church Street and Ninth Avenue up to the Gulch is a part of the ongoing growth of Nashville and representative of the pivots the publishing industry is making in the digital age.

    LifeWay implosion: How does the tower's namesake feel?
    CLOSE The 12-story LifeWay tower emblazoned with massive stone crosses has greeted visitors to downtown Nashville for more than a quarter of a century. On Saturday, orchestrated explosions obliterated it out of the city's skyline for good. CLOSE But the implosion at the former headquarters of the Christian publishing giant does not bother the man the building is named for.
