I thought this was a really great book by Fr. Seraphim. The first time I'd read anything by Fr. Seraphim (I believe it was "Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future", I was quickly turned off and stopped reading, because it struck me as too narrow minded and harsh. Shortly thereafter I had related my experience of his work to my spiritual father, Archimandrite Alexander (Cutler), of Blessed Memory, and in the presence of other brothers in the monastery. They had told me that I should not be discouraged by Fr. Seraphim's strong polemical tone, and that he was truly about the most kind and compassionate man they've ever known. They spoke of him as if he were still alive, and so, interestingly, I wasn't even aware that he had already passed a few years earlier. I've since come to appreciate Fr. Seraphim's publications. I'd like to read more of his books. I have a hard time getting much reading done these days. Frankly, that's a bummer.
