  • The Glenstal Book of Icons contains prayers and meditations on a selection of icons from the Abbeys 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 entry to the mystical spirituality of Eastern Christianity. The books aim is that of the icon itself: to open the heart in contemplative prayer to the transforming vision of Gods glory. Each icon is reproduced in full colour.
