THE GOSPEL IN BRIEF
by LEO TOLSTOY
2011, New York, HarperCollins
The greatest novelist of all time retells the greatest story ever told, the life of Jesus Christ, in The Gospel in Brief—Leo Tolstoy’s riveting, novelistic integration of the four Gospels into a single, twelve-chapter narrative. Virtually unknown to English readers until now, Dustin Condren’s groundbreaking translation from the Russian opens a precious new world of Tolstoy’s masterful literary talent to fans of War and Peace and Anna Karenina.
“A fresh translation destined to introduce a new generation to a fuller understanding of Tolstoy’s mind.” — Kirkus Reviews
