About the book:

This book by Bishop Christoph Schonborn, the principal editor of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, is about the human face of God. Artists and theologians have meditated upon the mystery of God's human countenance and tried to express it.  This book seeks to present the great sources of this meditation--sources which today are widely unknown, or have become foreign or obscure.  These sources are above all the great masters of early Christianity.  In their meditation upon Christ, Bishop Schonborn seeks the sources of the art on the Icon.  The reader will find not only an engaging introduction to the meaning and beauty of Icons, but an invitation to draw closer to the One who inspired these Masters of theological expression and holy art.  Includes beautiful color Icon illustrations.
