This is truly a well written book about an amazing man who was totally surrendered to God's will in his life. We Orthodox Chrisitians are blessed to have monasticism as a part of our Church and to have the monks interceding for us and the world. Indeed, they support The Church, hold up The Church in prayer, vigils, etc. I recommend this book to any and all who are considering purchasing it.

This is a must have book for anybody! After reading it, I understand and feel more of a connection between myself and my spiritual father. Also, I feel like I have a personal connection with Elder Joseph even though I have never met him. Beautiful job by Elder Ephraim and any others who contributed to this book.

I've read the whole book and wanted to keep reading. Very thankful to Geronta for sharing his experiences with his holy elder. It helps me to see the many blessings one receives with a Prayerful life and true obedience to his/her elder/eldress or spiritual father. We love Geronta!
