The book "Father Arseny" is a story of a priest's ultimate test of faith during the years of World War II. Father Arseny is an Orthodox Christian priest and hiromonk who lived in Soviet Russia. A large portion of his life was spent in Prison Camps, or in Exile for being an "Enemy of the People". Father Arseny, when in camps, surprises people, well educated and criminal alike, by explaining to them that he is the well known Piotr Andreyevich Streltzov. "Famous art historian, author of many books and articals, teacher of many, a famous professor" who seemed to have dissappeared, but became a priest. This book is truly a book to read whether you are ten or a hundred and ten, whenever you pick it up, you will not put it down until the book is finished.

Its been several years since I've read this book but I felt I must say something about this book in case you were considering reading it. It is almost impossible to read this book without being inspired to be something more than you are as a human being. I am an Orthodox Christian and must say I do not believe you need to be an Orthodox Christian to appreciate this book. In the face of humiliation and persecution, this man didn't just plod along, he actively engaged people whose hearts would have seemed irredeemable to most people. This book is a piece of modern spiritual history as well as a great encouragement and challenge to all Christians and other peace loving people.
