- From God to You: The Icon's Journey to Your Heart
Item No. 9781936270767
by John Kosmas Skinas
In this follow-up to the popular Pictures of God, John Skinas introduces children to some of the ancient icon archetypes most treasured by Orthodox Christians—from the Icon Not Made by Hands to the Pantocrator of Sinai.
From God to You follows the path of the icon through history and encourages children to mindfully consider icons and their stories as windows of inspiration and doorways to prayer.
“Burned, smashed, and buried, icons have endured a great deal as they’ve made their way from God to you. They’ve reached you because He wants them in your church, in your home, and in your hands. But most of all, God wants you to keep His image in your heart, where, if you listen closely, you can hear His message with every beat. . . ."
Note: The Christ the Good Shepherd icon featured on the front cover of the book is by the hand of Michael Kapeluck. Mounted copies may be purchased from this store using order number 008331 for a large icon or order number 008332 for a medium icon.
