Leather bound Flexi-Cover – in Slipcase - 1024 pages
First English translation of a story of miracles, love, hate, faith and betrayal; but sorrow and sadness is overcome by prophecy and unimaginable joy. This is a story of simple folk and spiritual giants in 19th century Russia. It’s the story depicting the extraordinary life of a boy becoming the world beloved St Seraphim of Sarov. We encounter a man full of joy to whom flocked thousands of people – and still do. We encounter so many individuals searching for something more than their immediate surroundings, we enter the Convent in Diveyevo and see life inside.
This historical tale was compiled by Metropolitan Seraphim (Chichagov) who was martyred by Bolsheviks in 1937, from 60 notebooks of first person testimony, published in 1903, saved from destruction by communists.
