Hi All,

Has anyone read this book Everyday Saints and Other Stories - by Archimandrite Tikhon (Shevkunov)

http://www.facebook.com/everydaysaints.book

http://www.amazon.com/Everyday-Saints-Russian-Orthodox-Archimandrite/dp/0984284834

Is this the book where there is a story of a Priest and Demon where the demon appeared to him while sitting in his office drinking his tea the demon appeared infront of him and he ended up running 9miles (14km) to another village to tell another priest, possibly for help ?. I heard that story partially on the radio. I am wondering if this is the book that the story came from?.

Thanks

It is a good book. And, yes, that story is from it--illustrating that the priest was not ready to do exorcisms.

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.

I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.

Thanks, I'll have to put it on my future reading list.
