"THIS is the Fr. Seraphim I remember, and how wonderful it was to read this biography and relive it all. Fr. Damascene’s work is a fine reconstruction of the Platina Years’ that affected so many of us in a positive way. But most important of all, Fr. Seraphim lives again in these pages—just as I recall him—a warm, clear-thinking advocate of that which we need so badly these days: a suffering Orthodoxy of the heart.… This is a truly exceptional book, worthy of the noble and righteous Fr. Seraphim!”

—Hieromonk Ambrose (formerly Fr. Alexey Young),
author of Letters from Father Seraphim

"The Light of Christ, shining through Fr. Seraphim, illumines the path of faith and encourages us who attempt to follow in the way. Hieromonk Damascene presents this light-filled life in words so clear and inviting that the reader eagerly follows, page after page.”

—Frederica Mathewes-Green, National Public Radio commentator,
author of At the Corner of East and Now and The Illumined Heart

"This new biography of Fr. Seraphim Rose is an outstanding portrait of an American convert to Orthodoxy, who, having found the fulfillment of his life in the Orthodox Church, paved the way for thousands of others to follow him. This excellent book is both a challenge and an inspiration to all who are searching for intellectual and spiritual integrity, not only in word and thought, but as a whole way of life.”

—Hieromonk Jonah, Abbot of the Monastery of St. John of Shanghai
and San Francisco, editor of Divine Ascent

"Fr. Seraphim Rose was a lover of tradition who was also far ahead of his time. His inspiring life and thought deserve to be more widely appreciated.”

—Phillip E. Johnson, author of Darwin on Trial and The Wedge of Truth
