Praying with Icons - Ancient Spiritual Displines

Icons are a doorway to prayer that will deepen your relationship with God.

Icons point us beyond themselves. They are different from paintings. An icon speaks to both the mind and the soul. We respond in belief, or praise, or wonder, or encouragement, or simply---prayer.

This series of "little books" is designed to enable you to grasp the meaning of one ancient method of Christian prayer in a relatively short amount of time. In Praying with Icons you will discover:

- What makes an image an icon
- The history of icons in the Orthodox Church
- Some of the most recognizable icons, and their meanings
- How to get started incorporating icons into your life of prayer

Linette Martin is the author of several books, including Sacred Doorways: A Beginner's Guide to Icons. She studied Byzantine Art at Oxford University, England. After their children were grown, Linette and her husband lived in an Oxfordshire village until her death in 1998.
