Rowan Williams – Praying With Icons of the Virgin


This book is bound to be a gem in the section of iconography some day. Rowan Williams’s work actually brings the icons to life. He goes through the book describing each icon he writes about in detail. He also makes statements about what these things reveal to the viewer of the icon. What is going on in the icon?

The icons reveal ultimately how despite our unworthiness, God still is drawing the curtain back in order to see into us.

It’s a brief book and very short. One could easily read it in a 2-hour sitting if they willed.
