Icons are religious pictures most closely associated with the traditions, theology, and customs of Orthodox Christianity. A premier publisher of books of interest to Orthodox communities, Conciliar Press offers "Pictures Of God: A Child's Guide To Understanding Icons". This informative introduction designed specifically for use with children, explains what icons are, what they mean, and how they portray holy stories taken from scripture and other sources for the benefit of the faithful. The full color reproductions of representative examples of icons is simply flawless. "Pictures Of God" is a highly recommended means by which parents can provide their children with a true understanding of the value icons have within the Orthodox community and the believing hearts of the faithful.
