Author: Fr. Daniel Sysoev
Truth can endure no falsehood, and herself finds those who seek her. But there is one condition: one must reject one’s own opinion and prefer the Lord’s, and seek not oneself, but God. It is no easy thing to leave off your former way of life and the things of which you were convinced, thinking you were on the right path. But it is those who are willing to do this that God calls His chosen. This book is an actual conversation with a young Protestant, who himself approached an Orthodox passer-by in the Taganka region one spring morning. Was he seeking the truth? What answers did the Orthodox Christian give him and how did he behave? Did anything change in their hearts after their dialogue, and who was proven right? The reader will witness their conversation and will hear numerous arguments grounded in Holy Scripture.

While this short book was interesting, it wasn't what I had hoped. It had some good points for "why" the Russian Orthodox believe as they do, I thought parts of it were condescending toward the Protestant belief. I have no argument with the reasoning or the belief, just felt it was somewhat condescending. Perhaps because it was set in Russia and was likely translated, the translation comes across coldly. But, I wouldn't recommend it to the casual Protestant reader.
