Robert Lentz, a well-known painter of contemporary icons, this classic Nouwen book invites readers to pray with four Russian icons with their eyes open by emphasizing seeing or gazing, which are at the heart of Eastern spirituality.

Book Description :

A close look at three classic icons of the Virgin and Child reveals profound truths about discovering God in our World. “Icons, says Archbishop Rowan, show us the way.... They help us to cross borders, to enter into a new and transfigured world. And that is exactly what I experienced as I read....This is a book to be read not once only, but many times.”—Kallistos Ware, from the Foreword What we call holy in the world—a person, a place, words, or a work of art—is so because the foreign is brought together with the familiar and the everyday. No one embodies this holiness more than Mary, who makes a home for the Creator of all things in her own body and in her own house. Ideal for all Christians—Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant—Ponder These Things invites you to explore and reflect on the depths of meaning in three classic icons from the Eastern Christian tradition. Icons have been described as “theology in line and color.” Tracing the movement within them, the Archbishop of Canterbury discovers the pattern of love that they reveal. This love invites and embraces us so that we find ourselves caught up in the drama of the love of God. Rowan Williams is a poet, theologian, and the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury. In 2013, he will become Master of Magdalene College at the University of Cambridge.

Book Description :

Rowan Williams applies his knowledge and imagination in reflecting on four classic Eastern Orthodox icons of Christ: the Transfiguration, the Resurrection, the Hospitality of Abraham (an icon which depicts the Trinity) and the Pantocrator, or Christ in glory. Icons have been called "theology in line and colour" and in these images we find eternal truths and life-changing challenges. Icons have become increasingly popular as aids to devotion, but with an expert guide such as Rowan Williams, their many layers of meaning emerge more clearly.

Book Description :

The Glenstal Book of Icons presents meditations and prayers on a selection of icons from the Abbey's Byzantine chapel. The process is that of lectio divina, where the icon itself is the text to be read and considered. This leads to a meditation on the text/icon, which in turn leads to prayer. Each icon is reproduced in full colour. A substantial introduction places the icon in its context in Eastern Christianity, then looks at the theology of icons and at the Eastern approach to praying with them. Special emphasis is given to The Jesus Prayer which is then used in various forms throughout the meditations which follow.

Book Description :

The Ecumenical Work of the Icon is an invitation to the students and faculties of Catholic seminaries to be a part of the tradition of the icon through the lens of ecumenis. With a view of ecumenism as lived in both the Roman Catholic and Orthodox traditions, the visual theological language of the icon may be engaged more fully and respectfully, thus enriching the theological education and future ministry of those who learn and teach in a Catholic setting. In the third portion of the book, readers are offered multiple practical pedagogical examples of how to integrate teaching and learning about the icon into seminary courses and beyond, including writing assignments, oral presentations, and hands-on activities.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

The body is crucial to religious life, but there has been little practical attention to how to make a helpful reality of this fact. Strong forms of philosophical dualism have been widely abandoned by post-war theologians in favour of a more integrated view of human nature, but guidance on the role of the body in Christian spirituality remains fragmentary. Focusing particularly on drawing out practical implications for religious life and ministry, this book will survey the many ways in which the body plays an important role in religions and spiritual life, drawing on scientific research, theology and philosophy.

Book Description :

The Colour of Prayer comprises some 39 icons, each accompanied by explanatory notes and a contemplative prayer, shared by an author who has become an expert in the field.The book is the culmination of 35 years of work in the field of iconography. Rob Gallacher's interest in icons was sparked when attending Bossey, the Institute of the World Council of Churches in Switzerland in 1969-70. In 1985 he began painting icons under the guidance of Bishop John Bayton, and in 1995 he began to teach. Soon there were three schools with a total of 50 participants. Rob has travelled widely in pursuit of his interest, and undertaken courses at the monastery of Valamo in Finland, and in England under Aidan Hart."All the icons depicted in this book are photographed from icons I have painted myself.? They represent a wide variety of cultures, periods and styles.? I see this book as something of an anthology of iconography."
