“We honor the icon of Christ and reverence it because it is a created reflection of the human face of God in the flesh.”Creating this icon provides an opportunity to meditate on the mystery of the incarnation and allows us to develop a deeper relationship with Christ. Anyone who has ever been interested in sacred art or the process of icon-creation will love Drawing Closer to Christ. Malham’s reflections were fascinating and offer much to ponder. While the book is designed for at-home use, it could also be a small group project. This book provides an innovative retreat experience, both prayer-filled and creative.
