Author: Archimandrite Tikhon (Shevkhunov)
Everyday Saints is a collection of stories mostly recounted from the life of the author, Archimandrite Tikhon. The book mainly takes place during the Russia's Soviet period, during which the author is baptized and joins the Pskov Caves Monastery. The reader encounters stories ranging from the lives of the relatively unknown saints from this period, to the life of a man who impersonated a hierodeacon. Challenging, yet edifying, Everyday Saints is a necessary addition to an Orthodox library.
This book is the English translation of a work that has soared at the top of the bestseller lists in Russia since its publication in late 2011. Its readership spans philosophical boundaries, from the devoutly religious to the vehemently atheist.
