Murav’ev-Amurskii, and the three-volume Innokentii’s Work.

Innocent of Moscow brings St. Innocent’s career as an archbishop and missionary sharply into focus. Written in an apologetic style, it uses St. Innocent’s work as proof of the Russian Orthodox Church’s vitality and faithful service in the gospel.

Charles R. Hale (1837–1900) was educated at the University of Pennsylvania, a lawyer, noted scholar, and priest in the Episcopal Church. He served as a chaplain in the U. S. Army during the Civil War, and later as a professor of mathematics at the U. S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
