In The Icon: Window on the Kingdom, Quenot instructs us that ''the icon expresses what Orthodoxy is, and like the Word of God, it transmits the Tradition of the Church.'' The Resurrection and the Icon continues Quenot's study, exploring the interdependence of Orthodox iconography and liturgical worship. Through 68 full-color icon reproductions and 26 black and white prints, Quenot takes the reader through the major feasts of the Church's annual cycle, revealing how icons stand beyond human reason and help us open ourselves to the transfiguring presence of the Risen Christ.

An Eighth Day View:

In a fascinating evaluation of the interdependence of Orthodox iconography and liturgical worship, Quenot guides the reader through the major feasts of the Church through their iconographic representations. Each image is treated not as a distinct work of art but as an integral element of a larger whole. Includes index, glossary, 68 color and 26 b/w illustrations.
