He produced a huge and varied body of work in Arabic, only a little of which has been translated into English. In addition, a great many of his informal talks to monks and visitors were recorded. He had a marvelous ability to communicate the deepest spiritual truths in the simplest and most practical language, making them accessible to laypeople as well as monastics. He speaks to the heart rather than the head, gently exhorting the reader to pursue a deeper life in Christ.

Book: Instructions and Teachings for the American Orthodox Faithful, by St. TikhonBook: Instructions and Teachings for the American Orthodox Faithful, by St. Tikhon

“These words and sermons represent in a way the archpastoral diary of Vladyka, in which the main aspects in the life of the American Orthodox Church that the Archpastor paid attention to are indicated. Re-reading these “Instructions and Teachings” of His Holiness to the American flock, the pastors and those in their care, the reader involuntarily is present amidst the flow of life in the American Church, enters the many-sidedness of its parts, recalls its distant past, contemplates what was contemporary for the hierarch, and detects similarities or differences between what took place then and what exists in its present life.”

Book: Know the Faith: A Handbook for Orthodox Christians and InquirersBook: Know the Faith: A Handbook for Orthodox Christians and Inquirers
I'm always on the lookout for the most helpful book for the many inquirers into Orthodox Christianity that come through my church's door. Fr. Michael's new book is an excellent resource in that it is creative, Biblical, Orthodox, well-argued, and a joy to read. If you take the Bible seriously, are interested in Orthodoxy and how it compares to other Christian groups, you need this book.
