One of the most popular books ever published by Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville has been The Law of God by Archpriest Seraphim Slobodskoy, appearing in both Russian and English. The first edition was printed on low grade paper in black and white, but nevertheless orders for this book were always overwhelming.

Many generations of Orthodox faithful both in Russia and abroad have grown up on this guide to the world of faith. In all Orthodox families and schools of the Russian Church Abroad The Law of God is a mandatory textbook. We in the Russian Orthodox diaspora have always welcomed with interest all new reprints of this book and I am pleased to recommend the new beautiful edition of The Law of God published by the Moscow Sretensky Monastery.

The book is intended for a wide range of readers, and I hope that everyone who reads it will find the answers they seek concerning our Russian Orthodox Faith and the Church. I would also ask our pious readers to pray for the blessed repose of the author of this book, Archpriest Seraphim, in gratitude for his labors.

Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York,
