"In brief, this is a splendid book in every way . . . Extremely well written, highly informative, and very inspiring. Fr. Alexander and St. Tikhon's Seminary Press have done the English-speaking Orthodox world a magnificent favor by producing this book. Please forgive our superlatives, but we are really excited by this publication. This is definitely a 'rush out and buy it!' book . . . Fr. Alexander manages to make his timely introduction. . . both spiritual uplifting and delightful . . . His . . . compelling explanation of the monastic life [is] probably the finest written in modern times . . . The extended introduction . . . alone would make this book worth purchasing . . . The story of how our beloved St. Herman has come to be loved and honored in Greece is . . . simply inspiring . . . One can read this book straight through with eager interest, and then pick it up again and again . . ." -- Doxa, Christmas 1996
