If you are under the impression Drawing Closer to Christ is a retreat during which you will draw closer to Christ, you are correct. If you are under the impression this book is an art lesson - again, you are correct. Enter into an eight-day, self-guided, contemplative retreat to create your own icon of Christ the Pantocrator.
Joseph Malham is the internationally acclaimed iconographer who invites you to create your own icon as he guides you through the creation story of Genesis. The writing (proper term) of an icon is completed in conjunction with prayer, so it makes perfect sense to complete one over the course of a retreat. Joseph provides history, direction in prayer, and instructions. A materials list will get you started. You will need gold leaf, but even so, the materials are affordable. A step-by-step process is accompanied by photographs. Don't worry about your artistic skills. The Holy Spirit will guide you and Joseph provides a pattern for tracing. Indeed, as you work, you will draw closer to Christ.
