Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This book is an artistic treasure that achieves its purpose in sharing the wealth of these charming icons and prayerful reflections with the universal Church, East and West.
Catholic Studies

. . . a most accessible introduction to icons in the wider context of liturgical life and prayer. The lucid commentary is thorough, accurate, and discerning and enables the reader to understand icons as ‘theology in color,’ a ‘bible in images,’ without getting mired in much of the detail of the history and schools of iconography.
Cistercian Studies Quarterly

The icons themselves are quite beautiful and they will inspire anyone who uses this book for prayer and contemplation of the life of Jesus.
Catholic Library World

The high quality of reproduction as well as the spiritually enriching content of Moloney’s commentaries make this book a rich source for prayer and contemplation.
Worship

[T]his book of icons is a small gem. . . . recommended for those who value art as a way to enter into in a contemplative way of being present to their God. It is highly recommended for anyone.
Emmanuel

[A] beautiful gift book.
The Bible Today

Icons represent a lot in western society. Life of Jesus in Icons: From the Bible of Tbilisi is a fresh approach to the life of Jesus through the iconic events throughout the man’s life. From the Annunciation to the Ascension, each event is discussed in detail with quotes from Scriptures accompanying each event alongside classical art work. A new way of reading the story of Christ, Life of Jesus in Icons is a strong choice for any Christian book collection.
