The Open Door:
Entering the Sanctuary of Icons and Prayer
by Frederica Mathewes-Green

The Open Door: Entering the Sanctuary of Icons and Prayer by Frederica Mathewes-Green
  • Description
  • Reviews

Unlike many books of meditations on icons, this book presents a unique opportunity for readers to visit an imaginary church and see icons “in action” throughout the year—to stand alongside worshipers for whom the use of icons is a natural part of their devotional lives. Reproductions of icons on the book jacket and in the inside text allow the reader to view the icons that would be found in a typical contemporary Orthodox church, as Frederica Mathewes-Green explains their history and theology. Stories of saints and texts of the prayers appointed for the day enhance the devotional quality of the book. Anyone interested in understanding and “praying with” icons will benefit from this warmhearted, practical guide.

Encounter twelve of the world's most significant Orthodox icons with one of today's best-loved spiritual writers as your guide.
