An excellent introduction to one of the world’s most important authors, this volume vividly reveals – as none of his novels can on their own – the common thread of the great God-haunted Russian’s questioning faith. Drawn from The Brothers Karamazov, The Idiot, Crime and Punishment, and The Adolescent, the seventeen selections are each prefaced by an explanatory note. Newcomers will find in these pages a rich, accessible sampling. Dostoyevsky devotees will be pleased to find some of the writer’s deepest, most compelling passages in one volume.
Philip Yancey, Christianity Today
For those busy souls intimidated by the length of his great novels, The Gospel in Dostoyevsky offers a wonderful sampler. Grab it. Read it. And, be careful: you may find yourself – as I did – scouring used bookstores for every obscure work of this incomparable writer.
J. I. Packer, Regent College, Vancouver
In the passages selected here, a super-sensitive giant of the imagination projects a uniquely poignant vision of the plight of man and the power of God. If it makes you weep and worship, you will be the better for it. If it does not, that will show that you have not yet seen what you are looking at, and you will be wise to read the book again.
Malcolm Muggeridge, from the Foreword
Dostoyevsky was a truly prophetic figure, plunging down frenziedly into his kingdom of hell on earth and arriving at Golgotha. He had a tremendous insight into the future and foresaw the world we have today.
