Book Review - Praying with Icons

Praying with Icons

By: Jim Forest

Book Reivew

I have read the icon controversy in church history, but I had never read an Orthodox Church presentation of Icons. Jim Forest's "Praying with Icons" was given to me by a friend. It gives an easy-to-read overview of what it means in the Orthodox Church to use icons in worship.

I view it as a helpful presentation of the topic for western Christians. It is easy to relegate whole points of view without actually having investigating the details. My opinion is that is a dangerous way for any of us to treat other people. Forest's book is a great way to get the basic overview.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
