Icons: The Essential Collection
# UM1252 Hardcover, 116 pages; 2016
Icons challenge our busyness and give us a place to simply unwind. Often we do not want to calm down; we like the hype of living, or we are in a situation where we are in constant movement and worry. The icon gently gives us an opportunity to rest...
Whether you pray before icons to feel closer to God or you simply take comfort in their artistic presence, you'll find beauty and solace in this lovely little book. Dozens of vibrantly colored Christian icons depicting Jesus, the angels, and various saints are interspersed with Scripture passages, prayers, and quotations from religious writers. Combined, they create an inspiring space to explore faith and grace. (KG)
