Everyday Saints and Other Stories by Archimandrite Tikhon Shevkunov

More than a million copies and several million electronic versions of this book have sold in less than a year. Everyday Saints is the English translation of the work that has soared at the top of the bestseller lists in Russia since its publication in late 2011. Winner of several national awards including “Book of the Year”, its readership spans philosophical boundaries, from the devoutly religious to the vehemently atheist. Surpassing all competition many times over, it was voted the most popular book in Russia for 2012.
Open this book and you will discover a wondrous, enigmatic, remarkably beautiful, yet absolutely real world. Peer into the mysterious Russian soul, where happiness reigns no matter what life may bring. Page upon page of thanks, praise, and testimonies to the life-changing effect of these bright, good-hearted, and poignant tales have flooded the Russian media. This book has been the cause of many sleepless but happy nights: “I couldn’t put it down—was sorry when it ended” is the common reaction.
The book is being translated into ten different languages. This English translation, Everyday Saints, is every bit as charming as the original.

In spite of my not having much time to read, I read this cover to cover in a few sittings. It is the kind of book you just can't put down. I am not normally a religious book reader, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. It is hard to say what it is about it, you just have to read it. I would recommend it to anyone.

I kept hearing about this book from my friends in a local reading group. Finally, I heard an excerpt from it at a work party. When 'the wall came down' between East and West Berlin and the USSR started its thaw toward the rest of the world it marked a new beginning for everyone. I never thought about the huge changes happening inside that sleeping bear though. This book is such a warm peek into that process, such a very human story. It's going to be a read over and over kind of book.
