Icons, central to the spiritual life of Orthodox christians, receive a new refreshing treatment in this ground-breaking work.  The Educating Icon: Teaching Wisdom and Holiness in the Orthodox Way explores the role of the icon in transforming the attentive viewer into the likeness of God - and by extension, how a community may be transformed into an earthly manifestation of the kingdom of heaven.

In The Educating Icon, author Anton C. Nrame clearly, colorfully, and dramatically reveals the visual and experiential teaching tradition of the Orthodox Christian faith, which emphasizes participation before explanation, experience that leads to understanding.  Vrame illustrates how this remarkably contemporary viewpoint, intrinsic to the ancient spiritual tradition reaching back to the Apostles, can be used dynamically to renew present-day Christian education while remaining faithful to the living tradition of the Church.
