A way of thinking about catechesis in the Church from the perspective of the art, theology, and liturgical and devotional use of icons. Fr. Anton C. Vrame highlights the importance of an "iconic catechesis" in which each person is nurtured to grow into the likeness of God. The Educating Icon is a wonderful introduction to the visual experiential teaching tradition of the Orthodox Christian faith.
