Product Description

Living Icons is a collection of intimate portraits on holiness as exemplified in the lives and thoughts of ten people of faith in the Eastern Orthodox Church. In this inspiring volume, Michael P. Plekon introduces readers to a diverse and unusual group of men and women who strove to put the Gospel of Christ into action. These "living icons" were remarkable people of faith and include priests, theologians, writers, and caregivers to the poor, all having lived through times of great suffering and persecution by ecclesiastical opponents and authorities. Despite their long suffering, each demonstrated a unique pattern for holiness and illustrated that the path to sainthood is open to all. Living Icons brings to life the beautiful, and often unfamiliar, spirituality of the Eastern Orthodox Church through some of its most remarkable members and shows with simple clarity the living Christ of the Gospel.
