Back Cover of the Book

Webmaster's Note: I met Sergei in June of 1972 when he spoke at my high school gymnasium in Felton, California. My father's secretary was Sergei's interpreter that night. A few months later we learned of Sergei's untimely death. I look forward to seeing him in heaven when the Day dawns and the Morning Star rises in our hearts!

You may enjoy a YouTube video which is an exciting audio reenactment about Sergei Kourdakov which was produced by the Pacific Garden Mission's "Unshackled" show.
