St Tikhon of Zadonsk, one of the most revered saints of the Russian Orthodox Church, was elevated bishop in 1754 and devoted his episcopacy to raising the level of monasticsm, developing the clergy and zealously guiding the faithful. Journey to Heaven provides counsels on the particular duties of every Christian and indispensable advice for acquiring virtue. Known as the "Chrysostom of the Russian Church", St Tikhom writes with great persuasiveness through simplicity and grace. The challenges and temptations he addresses are timeless and universal and his advice is direct, compelling and practical and speaks to us as much today, as it did to the faithful of the Russian Church over two-hundred years ago. This collection of St Tikhon's writings, published in over fifty Russian editions alone, has been an enduring classic guiding the faithful on their own journey to heaven.
