Leo Tolstoy is is brilliant thinker. I can't say that I agree with everything he said. I think that some of his commentary is conditioned by his time and place. Nevertheless, he has something to challenge anyone. I think this book may be especially beneficial for Christians to read, though I don't think I would recommend it for someone going through a crisis of faith. It might add too many new questions if one is already struggling. On the other hand, I might just be the answer to the very thing they are struggling with. Michael Scott is clear and consistent as ever.
