Kazan Icon of the Mother of God: History, Service & Akathist
trans. Isaac Lambertsen
More than a simple translation, the history of this beloved icon of the Mother of God here presented was carefully compiled by the translator from a variety of sources. The historical background prepares for a better entry in prayer into the texts of the liturgical service and akathist, which should deepen our comprehension of the divine economy of salvation... our deliverance from slavery to sin through the redemption made possible by the birth of the Son of God, the Son of Man, the Son of Mary the Virgin.
