The Sign of the Cross

Full Product Description

Explore the mystery of the ancient gesture that invites the Cross of Christ into our lives Millions of Christians around the world use the sign of the Cross-and have done so for centuries-as a gesture of blessing. It is practiced when alone, during worship, before sleep, upon waking, before eating, before travel, and many other times throughout the day. But, what does it mean? Where did it originate? What did the sign of the Cross mean to the first Christians, and how has this simple movement of the hand evolved over the centuries? The sign of the Cross is literally a tracing of the Cross of Christ onto the body. By so doing, Christians invite the mystery of the Cross into their everyday lives. Now and for the first time, young Greek scholar Andreas Andreopoulos explains the tremendous meaning, mystery, and history of this dramatic gesture shared by Christians worldwide. This readable account will fascinate and inspire all who desire to know more about the inherited spiritual practices of everyday life

The Sign of the Cross by Andreas Andreopoulos was published by Paraclete Press in January 2011. The ISBN for The Sign of the Cross is 9781557258748.
