To look art an icon of Christ is to do far more than view an image of a human life lived long ago. As Christians in the Orthodox tradition have understood for nearly fifteen-hundred years, it is to be brought into the presence of the one who radiates the light and love of God. Such an encounter cannot leave the viewer unchanged.

Drawing on this rich source of devotional theology, Archbishop Rowan Williams shows readers of all Christian traditions how to understand and interact with four classical icons depicting Jesus. After providing an illuminating introduction to the role and value of images in Christian worship and contemplation, Williams plumbs the depths of iconic portraits of Christ's transfiguration, his resurrection, Christ as a member of the eternal Trinity, and Christ as judge of the world and ruler of all.

As readers learn to look prayerfully rather than analytically at these icons, they will find themselves drawn into their energy and action. Speaking a powerful word of challenge to many of our contemporary concerns and anxieties, these classical works of religious art invite viewers on a journey to discover all that is to be found in the face of Jesus Christ.

Illustrated with lovely full-color art throughout, "The Dwelling of the Light" will be a treasured source of spiritual inspiration for both personal use and gift-giving.
