9780061993459 â€œThe Gospel in BriefÂ lives at the center of Leo Tolstoyâ€™s thinking about the meaning of life. ... Beautifully translated by Dustin Condren. ... Although little known, this book remains hugely important.â€ --Jay Parini, author ofÂ The Last Station: A Novel of Tolstoy's Last Year The most celebrated novelist of all time, the author of Anna Karenina and War and Peace,Â retells "the greatest story ever told," integrating the four Gospels into a single twelve-chapter narrative of the life of Jesus. Based on his study of early Christian texts, Leo Tolstoy's remarkableÂ The Gospel in Briefâ€”virtually unknown to English readers until this landmark new translation by Dustin Condrenâ€”makes accessible the powerful, mystical truth of Jesus's spiritual teaching, stripped of artificial church doctrine. "If you are not acquainted withÂ The Gospel in Brief," wrote the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, whose life was profoundly influenced by it, "then you cannot imagine what an effect it can have upon a person." â€œA fresh translation destined to introduce a new generation to a fuller understanding of Tolstoyâ€™s mind.â€ --Kirkus Reviews â€œDustin Condren captures, in this fresh idiomatic translation, the dazzlingly audacious achievement ofÂ The Gospel in Brief,Â Tolstoyâ€™s daring synthesis the New Testament accounts of Jesus.â€ --Edward E. Ericson, Jr., editor ofÂ The Solzhenitsyn Reader â€œNewly translated by Dustin Condren, Tolstoyâ€™sÂ Gospel in BriefÂ offers us a Jesus stripped of the overlay of Christian dogma and ancient metaphysics: his Jesus confronts readers with a real challenge and a call to change their lives.â€ --George Pattison, Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity, University of Oxford, and canon of Christ Church Cathedral
