Front Cover
St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood, 1987 - Religion - 477 pages
Blessed John (1896-1966) is believed by Orthodox Christians all over the world to be the holiest man of the 20th century. Manifesting many contrasting forms of sanctity, he was at one a God-inspired theologian and a "Fool-for-Christ", a zealous missionary hierarch and a feeder of the poor, a severe ascetic and a loving father to orphans. A man of intense and cease. less prayer, he was a genuine Holy Elder in the tradition of the great Russian startsi. Piercing the veil of time and space, he would mystically hear and answer people's thoughts before they would express them.

This edition contains numerous source-materials on Blessed John's life, a pictorial biography and one hundred personal testimonies of his sanctity.
