"If you are assailed by doubt, even total rejection of God, try Dostoyevsky. And don't be daunted by the fact that most of his books are fat. Start with this volume of power-laden excerpts." - a reader
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.
Illustrations by Fritz Eichenberg, foreword by Malcolm Muggeridge, introduction by Ernest Gordon, author of Miracle on the River Kwai.
For those busy souls intimidated by the length of his great novels, this book offers a wonderful sampler. Grab it. Read it. And, be careful: you may find yourslef – as I did – scouring used bookstrores for every obscure work of this incomparable writer. – Philip Yancey, Christianity Today
