This book is compiled from catechetical talks given by the missionary priest Daniel Sysoyev in Moscow. The printed texts of the talks preserve the spoken conversational style, drawing the reader in with numerous straightforward examples and clear answers to the catechumens’ “tricky” questions. The majority of those who attended Father Daniel’s talks became regular parishioners at Orthodox churches following their baptism. This book will benefi t catechizers, clergy, theological students, and all who wish to be always ready to give an answer to every man that asketh a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear regarding the principles of the faith. Being actual dialogs on questions of faith and the Church, these talks will likewise be of interest to the catechumens themselves.
