“This book is a little masterpiece: it informs and it explores, it recounts history and it provokes a religious quest. It is a personal book, yet it explores the great questions of theology; it is full of learning, but not ponderous; it is written from the perspective of faith, but is not off-putting to the inquirer.”

                                    -Thomas O’Loughlin, Professor of Historical Theology

                                    University of Wales Lampeter

“Andreopoulos explains the gesture and meaning and history of why Christianity has needed symbols and signs through the ages. Throughout, his writing is as inspiriting as a restorative benediction.”

-ALA Booklist

“The book succeeds at translating the significance of the sign of the Cross into something personal and immediate.”
