An Extraordinary Peace: St. Seraphim, Flame of Sarov

By Archmandrite Lazarus Moore


Originally printed in 1992, this work that many call a “classic” for Orthodox readers has been freshened considerably.  We feel it is an edition worthy of the incredible text given to us by the late Archimandrite Lazarus Moore.  Most people know the conversation between St. Seraphim and Motovilov in the forest; that is in chapter 8 of this book!
