For more than a thousand years, Eastern Christians have used their hands and hearts to create icons, proclaiming Gods reality in a visibleand breathtakingly beautifulway. This ancient art is enjoying a renewed interest in the West, as people of faith create icons and use them to meditate on mysteries for which there are no words.
A Brush with God is a guide to painting icons and using them in prayer. Written with warmth and energy, it describes the history of icons and examines why theyve been a spiritual tool for so many centuries. Written from a uniquely Western perspective, the book guides artistsfrom novices to professionalsthrough the process of icon painting, using traditional techniques but employing contemporary materials. Included are eight full-color plates of the artists icons.
