142 (Cavarnos, 1992)

An icon is something I can look through and get a wider glimpse of God and God’s demands on us, El’s mortal children, than I would otherwise.” “…words are inadequate to describe the Maker’s love for me and I, the made, to describe my love of the Maker.”143 Other possible uses of icon and symbol in an evangelical context will be discussed in more detail later in this paper.
