At this critical moment in time and history, the United States and Russia may be either entering a time of meaningful rapprochement after decades of lost opportunities, or what could be the “final act” that seals our mutual doom.
I agree with Dr. Williams Jeynes, a Harvard scholar and senior fellow at the Witherspoon Institute, that what we have today is not “our grandfather’s Russia.” My own visit to both St. Petersburg and Moscow in the summer of 2013 convinced me that a genuine spiritual revival is occurring there – because, and NOT in spite of, the actions and policies of the Russian Federation and its leaders.
And my 2014/2016 (2nd ed.) novel, Holy Fool, Holy Father, tells a story of a young Russian living in Kazakhstan who participates in the early revival of Russian Orthodoxy – and more! – with the special companionship of a young woman who becomes his lifetime soul-mate. Together, they will serve an entire world destined to experience unprecedented global catastrophe.
It may be fiction – or is it? Truly life often imitates art. Check out the book – its twists and turns will delight (and challenge) you!
