Everyday Saints opens with a lovely and surprisingly welcome introduction to both believers and skeptics.

Archimandrite Tikhon then proceeds with a description of his own confused path to entering the monastery as a novice.

What follows are insightful descriptions of many of his fellow monks, often from birth to death.
Here, the time sequence jumps around a lot, from Pskov Caves Monastery to Pechory to Moscow
as he meets and interacts with each monk. It would be good to have separate time line of the author's life.

He delivers a whole new world, that of the old and new Russian Orthodox Church,
a presentation that would astound and horrify Sam Harris [Letter to a Christian Nation] and
Richard Dawkins [The God Delusion].

Beautiful and revelatory photographs enliven the stories. ( )
