The process is that of lectio divina, where the icon itself is the text to be read and considered. This leads to a meditation on the text/icon, which in turn leads to prayer. Each icon is reproduced in full colour. A substantial introduction places the icon in its context in Eastern Christianity, then looks at the theology of icons and at the Eastern approach to praying with them.

Special emphasis is given to The Jesus Prayer which is then used in various forms throughout the meditations which follow.
