This collection provides an essential introduction to the life and works of one of Russia’s most influential, recent Saints, John of Kronstadt. Born Ivan Ilyich Sergiyev, Fr. John was an archpriest, or a presbyter of great distinction, in the Russian Orthodox Church. He served at the Cathedral in St. Petersburg for many years, and was most noted for his charitable works as well as his writings on Orthodox Christian spirituality. As both a priest and a spiritual father, he sought to help prepare both himself and his fellow Christians for the life in Christ that awaits us on the other side of the resurrection. Seeing this life as a time of preparation and spiritual growth-through-struggle, his famous My Life in Christ is one of the greatest works of Russian spirituality in the last two hundred years.
