Takes readers into a mindset completely different to the secular commercial rat race.
Teaches Orthodoxy as it is lived by ordinary people in an environment hostile to it. Although on reading the book one soon realises that the people it is about are not at all ordinary. With these people existing in Russian society during the atheist era it is easy to see how and why the opposing ideology eventually imploded.
