The way of each individual is inimitable and unique but not all of us can learn spiritual lessons from own life experience, and what is even more important, translate such experience to others. Archimandrite John (Krestiankin) was one of the rare people who fully committed themselves to God and neighbours. And all teachings of Father John were reinforced by his personal experience. His toilsome and lengthy life filled him with abiding faith in God and boundless love, which was expressed in his testament with all the might of spirit: "Believe in God and trust Him and His kind will! Take everything in life—both joy and gloom, prosperity and evil days—as the mercy and truth of the Lord’s ways. And fear nothing in life but sin. It is only sin that deprives us of God's benevolence and gives us over to the enemy's despotism and tyranny. Love God! Love the love and love each other up to self-sacrifice. The Lord knows how to save those who love Him".
Three books comprising this edition give an opportunity to get familiar with one of the most prominent elders of our times demonstrating all the versatility of his spiritual knowledge.
