Ordinary Wonders: Stories of Unexpected Grace

$19.95

 Product Description

"A trailblazer of Russian Orthodox prose." - Bishop Tikhon (Shevkhunov), author of Everyday Saints.

The Deceitful Onion Bulb. A Blessing to Smuggle. The Conjuror of Rain. In this collection of stories as whimsical as their titles, award-winning author Olesia Nikolaeva poignantly recounts life for Christian believers in Soviet and post-Soviet Russia. In a manner reminiscent of the bestselling Everyday Saints these tales reveal a common theme - the subtle, sometimes imperceptible movement of Divine Providence at work in the lives of saints and sinners alike. Her writings bring us to what the ancient Celts called "thin places" where the boundaries of heaven and earth meet and the sacred and the secular can no longer be distinguished.

  1. Ordinary Wonders is Wonderful 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2018

    If you enjoyed Everyday Saints, the collection of stories put together by Archimandrite Tikhon which came out several years ago, you will love Ordinary Wonders: Stories of unexpected grace. The author Olesia Nikolaeva weaves together stories in a similar style mostly from her own experiences of people and events to show how God's invisible hand was present in all of them. I was eagerly anticipating a follow-up book for years and now we have it.
