Saint Tikhon’s Monastery Press is pleased to announce the release of its most recent title, The Life and Work of Metropolitan Leonty.

Edited by Dr. David C. Ford, Professor of Church History at Saint Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, South Canaan, PA, the 276-page volume, according to His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon, “provides important glimpses into the life and heart of a true man of God, a prophet in the deepest sense of the word…. May we all receive even a small crumb from the bountiful table of his life.”

Dr. Ford also edited Saint Tikhon of Moscow: Instructions and Teachings for the American Orthodox Faithful (1898 – 1907), published by Saint Tikhon’s Monastery Press.

“This volume is the first comprehensive publication in English on the remarkable life and Church ministry of Metropolitan Leonty [Turkevich]—a life and ministry which mirror the tumultuous history of the Church both in Russia and America for most of the 20th century,” writes Alex Liberovsky, Archivist of the Orthodox Church in America.  “It includes scholarly presentations given at the Symposium held in 2015 at Saint Tikhon’s Seminary commemorating the 50th anniversary of his repose, including funeral eulogies and other testimonials from those who remember him, as well as a sampling of his extensive and diverse writings, some newly translated into English.”

The volume may be ordered online or by contacting Priest Mikel Hill at  Phone orders are also being accepted at 888-454-6678.
