A Son of the Church

Translated by Hieromonk German Ciuba

“Although this treatise may have been composed nearly 400 years ago, its common sense approach to everyday life as an Orthodox Christian, and its call to a pious way of life makes it just as relevant to Orthodox Christians throughout the world today as it did to Russians of the Orthodox Faith in the 17th Century when it was apparently composed. We hope that the readers will find that it offers a guide to an Orthodox way of life and a call to piety in our everyday style of living.”
