A Voice for Our Time, Vol. 2 book cover

In his broadcasts on Radio Liberty, Fr. Alexander Schmemann (1921-1983) spoke to men and women behind the iron curtain who had endured the deprivation, persecution, and state-enforced propaganda of the Stalin years. But his words do not belong to that era alone. They are addressed just as urgently to our own time. He exposes the roots of the lies and misperceptions that abound in our age, and brings all to a proper perspective in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Father Alexander's son, Serge Schmemann, wrote in the forward of the first volume of A Voice for Our Time that his father's broadcasts "were never propaganda; they could not be. They were literally 'besedy,' conversations in which he spoke as a Russian to Russians, sharing truths and knowledge that he knew, instinctively, they hungered for.”

A Voice for Our Time: Radio Liberty Talks, Vol. 2 and the complete Radio Liberty Talks set may be purchased online at SVSPress.com or by calling 1-800-204-BOOK (2665).
