In this classic early twentieth century text a little known Russian philosopher and theologian addresses these questions and offers answers rooted in the tradition of the Orthodox Christian East and the lives of its sainted Christian men and women. Christian philosophy and its difference from other philosophical systems is discussed as well as the divine mysticism of Seraphim of Sarov, Francis of Assisi, and Simeon the New Theologian. The book includes reflections on the writings of Leo Tolstoy and conversations between him and the author, as well as martyrdom in the epoch of the first two Ecumenical Councils. This is not an easy text and it will confront the reader with a choice which cannot be compromised: Am I willing to turn from the conventional wisdom of this world in order to know true happiness through an encounter with the Light of the Eternal God, a power which can conquer even that of physical death?
