This latest book from Sister Wendy, like its companion volume Saint Paul in Art, enables us to share some of the great insights into the scriptures that she has gained from a life spent in prayer.

The Iconic Jesus , as the title suggests, introduces the reader to the meaning and significance of iconography. Sister Wendy has chosen a selection of her favourite icons, from traditional and modern sources, which depict episodes from the life of Christ. As we contemplate these icons, with her as our guide, we are taken out of our own world and drawn into a deeper understanding of the life of Christ and the life He wishes us to live.

"If we just leaf through the book, we will miss its potential to change what we are into what God would have us be, that infinitely free and joyful creature. It is not in words that we respond to the icon, but at a level far deeper and more immediate." (Sister Wendy).
