Dated

This is my first book by Mother Skobtsova. It may not be representative of her, but it certainly is representative of an Eastern Orthodoxy blinded by its own arrogance and certainty, that voluntarily avoids looking at any new ideas or development in theological thought, and that steadfastly argues for a sacred vs. secular divide that unknowingly posits a God so effete that It is hardly worthy of the name God. Other than that, it was great.
