"First and foremost, this is a book about the life of Christians in Russia, about the way people live with God in a real and pressing reality. Of course, the experiences of Christians in Russia in the 20th century are immense and unique, despite the fact that these events are comparable to the persecution of Christians in the early Christian era. Orthodox Christians in my country do not feel like heroes.

As Orthodox life is patterned by prayer, conversation with the Living God, it consists of what the world calls ‘coincidences’, that is, ‘God-incidences’. These are the generous and loving and providential interventions of God in our everyday life, showing to us the presence of saints in our midst.
