Description

Gazing on God is an exposition of Orthodox theology viewed through the lens of the experience of the faithful. This new theological approach encourages a critical and constructive dialogue across denominational, historical and cultural divides. We are led through an exhibition of icons, which are seen not only as objects of history and beauty, but also as tools to aid our understanding of theological thought. In this journey we discover that we need to change our expectations, and therefore admit that terms like 'understand' or 'know' are too limited when faced with the concept of the mystery of God. We may never be able to gaze on God completely, and grasp this mystery in its fullness. However, the theology of experience will help us on our journey and we may see that God is gazing on us instead. Gazing on God breaks away from the typical boundaries of introductory theological and iconological works and is essential reading for scholars interested in Eastern Christian theology, but also for anyone interested in Christian spirituality.
