This volume of St. Tikhon’s sermons and other writings, newly translated and edited by Alex Maximov and David C. Ford, provides English-speaking readers access to the words of a figure of towering importance for the Orthodox Church both in America and in Russia. Born Vasilii Ivanovich Bellavin (1865–1925), St. Tikhon was bishop of the Orthodox Church in North America from the end of 1898 until the spring of 1907, longer than any bishop between the establishment of the diocese in 1870 and the Russian Revolution. He then became the first Patriarch of Moscow in centuries and was martyred by the Soviets.

Alex Maximov is an independent scholar, and member of the parish of the Monastery Church of St. Tikhon of Zadonsk, South Canaan, PA. Dr. David C. Ford is Professor of Church History, St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Seminary, South Canaan, PA.
