The book is full of practical information in a warmly tone. The priest seems very much to have taken to heart his calling in the priesthood of being a shepherd to his flock and he gives great advice to those who were not raised Orthodox like myself or who's upbringing in the Church was not as good as it could have been. I recommended it to the book store at Church and told them they should keep a copy or several and encourage others to get it.
There's so much good info in a easy to understand format that's not so formal or theological in a hard to understand sort of way. Many books are great but they are often dry and a bit airy for the general reader to stay interested. I am new to Orthodoxy and have found the couple of priests that I have met to be wonderful people and very helpful but there is only so much time in a day. Having the book for yourself is like being able to have a priest's ear for all the things you might like to know but don't think to ask when you have the opportunity. The in depth interviews are well thought out questions and the responses are immeasurable.
