Father Seraphim was the secret hero of thousands in Russia and Eastern Europe during the Communist era. His commitment to the ancient Christian faith and his skill in communicating that faith made him a source of hope to all who read his works or observed his life. This book chronicles Father Seraphim's early life and explains his conversion to Orthodoxy in terms of his painful search for truth in the confused culture of California in the 1960's. At the end of his earthly life, those who knew him best believed him to truly be a man of integrity -- that is, one whose whole being had been ''integrated'' by deep love for Christ. For those interested in Father Seraphim specifically, or twentieth-century Orthodoxy generally, this is a must-read -- a beautiful book that awakens courage and hope and joy in all who struggle to love Christ.
