  Product Description
 

A great children's book telling the story of icons. Where did they come from? Why do we have icons in the Church? Why are they painted so differently from other pictures? What do the parts of an icon symbolize? 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.
