The Glenstal Book of Icons contains prayers and meditations on a selection of icons from the Abbey's Byzantine chapel. Drawing on the popular monastic practice of lectio divina, the icons themselves are seen as 'texts' giving rise to meditation on the Christian mysteries. This leads to acts of prayer, in which special emphasis is placed on the famous 'Jesus Prayer', discussed in detail in the introduction to the book. Thus the icons and the Jesus Prayer become a point of

It is often lost in translation, even by the NRSV and the Jerusalem Bible. Beholding needs to be recovered both in theology and practice. Ross is very aware of "poor talkative Christianity." There is a twofold plea to enter into silence--for lack of silence erodes our humanity--and to

Within the Eastern tradition of Christianity, the eikon, or religious image, has long held a place of honor. In the greater part of Western Christianity, however, discomfort with images in worship, both statues and panel icons, has been a relatively common current, particularly since the Reformation.
