Overview

Icons are a doorway to prayer that will deepen your relationship with God. Icons point us beyond themselves. They are different from paintings. An icon speaks to both the mind and the soul. We respond in belief, or praise, or wonder, or encouragement, or simply—prayer. This series of “little books” is designed to enable you to grasp the meaning of one ancient method of Christian prayer in a relatively short amount of time. In Praying with Icons you will discover: • What makes an image an icon. • The history of icons in the Orthodox Church. • Some of the most recognizable ones, and their meanings. • How to get started incorporating icons into your life of prayer.
