St. Tikhon, Bishop of Voronezh and Wonderworker of Zadonsk (1724-1783), has often been called the Chrysostom of the Russian Church for his eloquence in preaching and teaching. The present book is translated from the original Russian of his magnum opus On True Christianity.
"Very useful for our time are the works of St. Tikhon of Voronezh... The grace of God inspired the Saint to produce writings especially suitable for our contemporary needs. In these writings the teaching of the Gospel is explained."
- St. Ignatius Brianchaninov
Here is "a Saint whose fervent spirit is needed very much today by Orthodox Christians. We should read him more and practice what he teaches."
- Fr. Seraphim Rose
