Editorial Reviews

Philip Yancy
For those busy souls intimidated by the length of his great novels, The Gospel in Dostoevsky offers a wonderful sampler. Grab it. Read it. And, be careful: you may find yourself—as I did—scouring used bookstores for the obscure of this incomparable writer.

    Great for discussion groups!

    There are two books that I know of that are truly great introductions to the Russian Classics. 'Walk in the Light' compiles some of the best short stories from Tolstoy and 'The Gospel in Dostoyevsky' collects important excerpts from Fyodor that stand on their own as readable stories. Both are great for discussion groups, or even out loud family reading. I find the woodcuts by Eichenberg in his edition a bonus.
