Forest, a friend and biographer of Thomas Merton, peace activist, and convert to Orthodoxy, has given us a warm, personal, anecdotal introduction to icons which at the same time manages to convey a great deal about the spirituality and liturgical piety of the Orthodox Church. We would recommend this book as the best one for someone coming to icons for the first time. Forest reveals his own heart as he stands before the icon with us, and in this alone we learn a great lesson about icons. Another lesson is that we ought to pray, and so this book ends with a collection of the most often-used Orthodox prayers. Solid binding, unmarked text. Exterior shows moderate shelfwear and rubbing to corners.


An Eighth Day View:


A beautiful and fascinating book that not only describes the history of icons, but provides a practical guide explaining how to "pray with icons", and a series of meditative reflections on some of the most well-known icons.
