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.

I've come to a point of not wanting to go to the movies (haven't been for years), not wanting to watch TV, and even less so buy a recent book. And here is the exception that proves the rule--Archimandrite Tikhon's collection of stories that don't feature any of the dreaded substance of modern Hollywood/Bollywood/HBO material. They instead go to the very core of the human experience to answer the eternal most important questions of human existence.
The stories resonated so much with me that I cried reading almost each and every one of them. This book is a stark reminder that "Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever" and that salvation is possible even in our time when atheism is the norm of public life in the Western Civilization that has worked hard over the course of the 20th century to undermine its true cultural foundation.
In the word of St Nilus, "Avarice - the thirst for money, is a precursor of the Antichrist. All that is intentional and premeditated to prepare people to faith and following the Lord is, has been, and will be true. Conversely, anything that prepares people to abandon the Law of God and their Savior is a lie, the lie deliberately preparing the coming of the Antichrist and his acceptance by humankind. As St. John the Baptist preached a baptism of truth, and guided people on the path of salvation, so excessive and alarming concern not for spiritual, but for carnal things will spoil the feelings of people to make them numb and indifferent to their salvation, and due to the many cares about the flesh they will not have a sense of salvation. Men will not feel any desire for eternal future life, nor have fear of eternal damnation.
The harlot with the Antichrist in the womb and one goat, will be the sign of forthcoming split of the tame from the wild.
Yes, indeed, salvation will abide and will not be taken from the world, there will be possiblity to work for attaining salvation, and there will be people who work on their salvation until the end of the world. Yes, indeed there will be salvation, but for whom will it be? For those who will not obey the affairs of antitipa (the forerunners of the Antichrist)."
