Reviews

Theological Book Review
"This beautifully illustrated book provides the reader with an excellent guide to understanding icons. . . For anyone interested in the production and meaning of icons, this book will be essential reading." New Directions
"I guarantee you will not be disappointed by the reproductions in this book of Solrunn Nes' icons. The colours are vibrant and the faces of the figures arrest the attention of the viewer -- as of course they should." Dallas Morning News
"Nes offers a fascinating survey of Christian icons . . . accompanied by full-color images of her work." Touchstone
"Solrunn Nes has produced a fine guide to iconography in her Mystical Language of Icons. The book is lavishly illustrated in full color throughout with Nes's own icons, each in the style of one of the various schools with which she is most conversant. All are striking and luminous -- and fully in accord with the objective canonical tradition. Her work reveals how one committed prayerfully to the latter can nonetheless produce art of obvious creativity. This book is unreservedly recommended."
