In addressing his spiritual children, Fr. Nikon (d. 1963) speaks to all those seeking guidance on the difficult path to salvation. He balances exhortation and reproach with encouragement and consolation, instructing the reader in the fundamentals of the Christian struggle: "Recognize your indebtedness before God...submit yourself totally to God's good will...fear a high opinion of yourself...only through humility does a person become as one spirit with the Lord." Here is a volume of enduring value to anyone seriously and sincerely desiring to attain the Kingdom of Heaven.
