Ponder These Things: Praying with Icons of the Virgin

   
Rowan Williams

“‘Praying with Icons’: such is the subtitle that Archbishop Rowan Williams has given to this book, and in this phrase he emphasizes the real meaning of the icon. As he fully appreciates, the icon is not simply a work of art on the same level as any other work of art. [...]In the tradition of the Orthodox Church, the icon is not merely a piece of decoration or a visual aid. We do more than just look at icons or talk about the; we pray with them. In fresh and unexpected ways this book indicates how this can be done.”
