John Bickel:
Hello,
I just finished the book (English translation) and thought it was wonderful. My parrish plans to use the book for a study on everyday saints. (St Mary (Dormition) Antiochian Orthodox Church, Goshen, Indiana, USA. A big thank you to Father Tikhon for such a good read.

Nik:
Hello. Will Everyday Saint be available on Apple's iBooks?

Alexander Fairley:
Absolutely wonderful book! I am a Scottish convert to Orthodoxy who is hoping to become a monk on Mount Athos. This book is very inspiring and strengthens my sense of monastic vocation. Thank you, Archimandrite Tikhon for this beautiful book!

Iulia:
Wonderful, touching and full of real life book! I absolutely loved it! It reminded me of why I love Russian culture and Orthodoxy again. God bless you and all your readers! Iulia from Romania

Abril Vazquez:
Father Tikhon,
Thank you so much for such a beautiful account of these individuals. I'm a Roman Catholic living in Mexico, and it was very interesting for me to see so many similarities between the two faiths. Whatever our form of worship, God is God, and He is an active presence in the lives of humans, as exemplified in your lovely book.
May God bless you and all the faithful of Russia, Abril

Nicholas T.:
Will this book be available on Apple's iBooks by an chance? Thank you.

I enjoyed this book immensely. I wish I had read it before my trip to Russia seven years ago.
I did enter and visit some of the Orthodox churches and I visited St. Sergius Lavra Monastery which has had a lasting impression. I prayed as I waited in a line up for 3 hours in order to been able to kneel at the in corrupt body of this Holy Saint.
I felt right at home. I am Roman Catholic and I felt a great inner unity for the suffering church of Russia and the depth of their hearts.
Russia has a soul and its people have very big welcoming hearts.
I love this book.
The faith of the Russian people is such a light that cannot be extinguished.

John Gabriel Corcoran:
I am Orthodox and I am an Irish convert. I absolutely loved the book from beginning to end. it was uplifting,humorous, and also mystical ,and spiritually edifying .Most noticeable was that it thoroughly humanised and personalised the lives of the monastics and others referred to in the book . Reflecting Our Saviour , the book mingled the Divine and the Human.

Jared Sharp:
Why do you have a Latin heretic insulting our Orthodox faith on here? His review is blasphemous and you should remove such a demon worshiper!

Father Yerofey Popoff:
Father Tikhon!

I am an Priest in Erie Pa I serve in an Old Rite Parish. I am an assistant to Father Pimen Simon. I throughly enjoyed reading your book!! While I was reading it I could picture in my mind being in the Pskov Monastery. The stories seemed to come alive!
Reading this book helped to feel that Christ is in our midst if we pray fervently.

In Christ

Dear Father Tikhon,

I would just like to wholeheartedly like to thank you for this wonderful book! It is truly beautiful and so deep spiritually. Also, thank you for all those great articles on Orthodox Christianity (Pravoslavie.ru/english). They are always so helpful and enlightening.

You and your brothers will be in our prayers!

Thank you.

roger:
does anyone translate it to arabic?

Luz Marina Barreto:
A truly beautiful and amazing book! I took the kindle edition to a retreat at the Benedictine Abbey San Josй de Gьigьe, in Venezuela, and Father Tikhon's book really illuminated my days and enhanced my prayer. There is a beautiful "icon not made by hands" in a tiny chapel at the guest house (who happened to be besides my cell) and I would pray and meditate on Orthodox spirituality bearing in mind Father Tikhon's book.
I used to meet in the evening my friend and guide Father Jesъs Marнa Sasнa (a big Spanish liturgist!) and refer to him some of the stories, insights and anecdotes of the book. We wondered wether there is or there will be an Spanish translation soon, because he would love to have it read aloud to the monks at the refectory.
Please, let me know when an Spanish translation is available.
With kind regards and thank you very much for this extraordinary book and for the joy it conveys!

Angeliki:
I loved, loved, loved this book! The English translation read beautifully.
I didn't want to finish it, but alas, I did today.
As a Greek Orthodox, I am happy and grateful to God to read such wonderful Orthodox material coming out of Russia.
May the blessings of God and the saints, both those known and venerated, and those unknown, intercede for Orthodox everywhere!

Dimitry Zarechnak:
I am a member of Father Victor Potapov's parish in Washington DC. Before retirement, I was a senior diplomatic interpreter for the U.S. Department of State, and interpreted for the meetings between Presidents Reagan and Gorbachev.

The book "Nesvyatye svyatye" is a wonderful book, which I read in Russian. I then decided to read the English translation (I have the first edition). I have read a little over 30 pages. The translation reads well,but, unfortunately, it has a fair number of errors. For example, in paragraph 14 of the English text of the second chapter of the book,"In the Beginning" ("Nachalo"), the phrase "engrossed by those lectures" should read "engrossed by those experiments", and the phrase "Stalin...answered:'Some guy named Mikhail Gorbachev. But I've never heard of him myself. Find out who he is!'" should read "Stalin answered that it was some guy named Mikhail Gorbachev. But I've never heard of him myself. We need to find out who he is."

It would also be better to translate the title of the book as "Unsaintly Saints" -- this would correspond exactly to the Russian.

Perhaps corrections have been made in subsequent English editions? If not, it seems to me that it would be good to make them, if possible, in order to get the quality of the English version up to the quality of the Russian.


Konstantin:
Dear Nun Magdalena,

A printed copy of the book can be bought through Amazon.

Pavel Holder:
Can hardly put the book down. Spirituality is so much deeper in Russia...we Americans have so much to learn and so far to humble ourselves.

M Magdalena:
I would like to be able to send the book to a friend in Ireland, but I have only found Kindle versions - where can I find the printed book?

Nun Magdalena

Gregory:
I am almost through the English (Kindle) version, and absolutely love the book. God Bless.

свящ. Александр:
