“An understanding of Orthodox Christianity is essential to the contemplation of icons, which continue to aid millions of contemporary Christians from Ethiopia to Russia, from Argentina to Alaska, to bridge the abyss between the material and the spiritual worlds. At the heart of this book are two questions: How is this possible? And what can icons teach non-Orthodox Christians in their quest for peace and self-understanding? Our purpose in writing is to introduce our readers to the world of spirituality expressed in icons.”
