The English translation has been thoroughly revised and freshly typeset to make St John's own words more accessible to today's reader. The bite-sized reflections draw the reader in to the author's profound spiritual experience and love for Jesus Christ and the Church. This is the kind of book you will return to time and time again. Appropriate, relevant, and edifying reading for all Christians.

I began reading «My Life in Christ: the Spiritual Journals of St John of Kronstadt» as suggested by my spiritual father, Fr. George (Lagodich). I will go on reading during Great Lent and hope to finish by Pascha. The translation is accurate, clear and really inspiring: I compared it with the Russian edition. My conclusion: every Orthodox should read that book. Although it was written long ago, Father John's book sounds very contemporary, perfectly fit to our world where sin and «cheap» Orthodox practice seem the rule for many.
My only negative commentary is the size of the printing: it is too small and too light, and sometimes hard to read ...

This is great spiritual reading, one of the best that I have ever read. Every entry is uplifting and instructional.I have been reading just a few entries a day and meditating on them prayerfully. If you want to grow in the Christian faith buy this book!
