I am a simple-minded woman and after one of my children had read the first story at our local Church book-store I went back and bought it "for the kids". But after I read just a couple of the most profound stories of deep repentance and love I was so moved. In the book Mr. Katigas refers to God using a jackhammer on his soul and I feel that this book jackhammers my heart daily as I read the most beautiful stories. He is admittedly uneducated, sinful and unworthy, yet because of his great humility and love for his fellow man, he is able to allow God to speak through him to his egotistical passengers and touch their souls and mine as I read it.
A nun recently told us that the devil once complained that he wished that he could burn all of the spiritual books...because only one spiritual book can undo a lifetime of work in one soul. Allow this book to soften your heart and you will be full of joy!
Glory to God for all things!!!

I wasn't sure what to expect when first purchasing this book. But after reading the first chapter I was hooked. The taxi driver who is a very pious man has many amazing stories and experiences that everyone of us can learn from and relate too. I've read a lot of orthodox books from patristics to contemporary this is definitely one of my favorites!!! It's a must read!!!

What a wonderful book! I loved the simplicity of the chapters, the arrangement of stories, the swift and easy reading. In simplicity it is still profoundly touching and the author's faith is truly inspirational. This is a great book for people of all ages. The author is Greek Orthodox and no doubt, Orthodox will love this book, but I think Catholics will greatly enjoy, appreciate and understand it as well. I took it with me on my travels and it was perfect because of the short chapters and the subject matter. I didn't want it to end!
