An excellent collection of egg tempera paintings, each with an accompanying exploration of women and their place in iconography and the absence of their voices in the church and icon image. Exquisitely painted icons are juxtaposed with an explanation of each of the images in history, religious context. The icons within this book offer a modern reflection on the world we live in today. This book is a must for any library, for those collectors of icons and those in authority who preserve this great tradition. Iconography has the potential the shape future theology through new liturgy and perspective for men and women everywhere. Mary Jane Miller’s collection of new work is exquisite.
