The Icon-Loving Spirit
The papers in this book were presented by the author at theological and scientific conferences and meetings, and show how contemporary social problems can be confronted from the perspective of Orthodox theology.
The book begins with a talk on ‘The Icon-Loving Spirit and Iconoclasm’. It is not sufficient for us simply to be aware of the value of Orthodoxy: we have to know what the Church is. The aim of the Church is not just to work within society, or to give a logical answer to various problems, but to heal the human soul.
The Christian ought to live with divine inspiration, which comes from God’s grace but also from our co-operation.
