St. John of Kronstadt himself prefaces this book with these words: "I do not precede my book by any introduction: let it speak for itself. Everything contained in it is but a gracious enlightenment which was bestowed upon my soul by the all-enlightening Holy Spirit during moments of deep self-concentration and of self-examination, especially during prayer. When I had time, I noted down the edifying thoughts and feelings that came to me, and from these notes, continued for many years, this book has now been compiled; the contents are very varied, as will be seen by readers. Let them judge of them for themselves. 'He that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man' (I Corinthians 2:15)."

Appropriate both for beginners in the spiritual life and for those more experienced, no one can come away from reading this work without profit. This is the kind of book you will return to time and time again. Appropriate, relevant, and edifying reading for all Christians.

"'s the kind of book that you don't simply pick up and read cover to cover but rather go back and read a chunk and meditate and chew and pray and gradually learn more and more each time."                                   - Speaking of Books Podcast
