These excerpts from Dostoyevsky's greatest novels explore the devastating (yet ultimately healing) social implications of the Gospels, and vividly reveal the common thread of the great God-haunted Russian's questioning faith.
Illustrated by Fritz Eichenberg
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.
