Answering these and many other questions, 'The Story of Icons' is an excellent introduction to the meaning of icons in the Church and the part they play in worship.

Hallick tells the story of the origins of icons, from the catacombs to the iconoclastic conflict and the triumph of the icons that ended in the Sunday of Orthodoxy.

The second half of the book is devoted to the icons for the feast days of Christ and the Virgin Mary, teaching how to 'read' the icons for the story that each tells.

With a glossary of terms in the back, younger readers (aged 8 - 13) can explore the world of icons on their won or with the assistance of a teacher or parent.

The Story of Icons is a valuable tool at home and in church for teaching the Faith.
