Metropolitan Philaret was the third and one of the most respected Presiding Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad. He died in 1985. A short biography is followed by a more detailed account of the transfer of his remains in 1998. In his writing he shows us that God's law is placed into man's soul to "guide all of his life and activities." The law of is thus revealed not as an external impersonal moral code but as a personal, life giving reality for the believer. Altogether the book has thirty short chapters of instruction on topics ranging from "Freedom of Will" to "Emotional Development" and "The Necessity of Prayer."
