Part I - Reminiscences
18 Reminiscences from layman, Priests, Bishops, etc...each starting & ending with their own personal experiences with the Saint when he was alive. This created no true starting point, nor a general historical flow. Some information was repeated. After reading, it's up to the reader to paste together the Saint's life.
Part II - Testimonies Concerning Archbishop John's Power of Prayer
There is about 50 pages of people testimonies about Saint John's power of prayer after his death in 1966. I can personally give praise to Saint John when he revealed his help to my wife & I while we were vacationing & visiting his relics in San Francisco around Aug 2004.
Part III - Sermons & Homilies
These are 22 written sermons that Saint John gave during his life time. Some sermons are about the Church seasons: Lent & Theophany for example. Some sermons are on certain biblical passages: "In the Beginning was the Word...". Other sermons are about famous Russians: "The Tsar-Martyr Nicholas" or about the Russian exiles: "Russia".
Part IV - Decrees & Exhortations Issued by Archbishop John
As a Bishop, Saint John had to make Decrees about how the Church should run or how people should live, help, or understand Christian Orthodoxy.
A Troparion to the Saint & a Report of the Examination of Saint's Holy Remains
Over all a good book to read, but if your looking for a biography, this book should be used as a back-up reference.
