When Russia Came to Stay by Lea Povozhaev
When Russia Came to Stay is a story of a family's journey into Orthodox Christianity. The author clearly documents numerous serious inter-Christian and intercultural challenges that both she and her Russian born husband, Dima, encounter in their efforts to bring together two different backgrounds. The couple’s efforts to struggle with personal, couple, family and extended family challenges hold the reader’s attention. As the story unfolds, one wonders how the couple will bridge their many differences. Engaged couples from different religious and cultural backgrounds as well as intermarried couples should profit from reading this Christ-centered story. I enthusiastically endorse this book and recommend it to anyone interested in how religious and cultural differences can challenge and strengthen persons, couples and families: to God’s glory and their salvation.
