Reviews of : The Kingdom of God Is Within You by Leo Tolstoy PDF Book
Inside this Book – Mhatma Ghandi said of this book, “Tolstoy’s The Kingdom of God is Within You overwhelmed me. It left an abiding impression on me. Before the independent thinking, profound morality and the truthfulness of this book, all the books given me…seemed to pale into insignificance.” This was lovingly written in the cover of the book when I picked it out of pile of books destined for recycling, where the hard covers would be ripped off and the pages put through the recycling bin. I could not toss this book. My brother (a professor of English studies) pointed out to me the geneology of its publication, how ever year of its reissuing was during a massive era of change (World War II and the civil rights movement.). I do love this book. I am a slow reader. It will be a slow arduous journey through this book, but I am certain it will be worth it.
Inside this book –The Kingdom of God Is Within You PDF Book by Leo Tolstoy – I have read two of Tolstoy’s other masterpieces in “War and Peace” and “Anna Karenina.” For all the brilliant prose in these two works of penultimate genius, to really understand the heart of the novelist writing about his society, these essays lend powerful insight. The essays begin as Tolstoy rides a train with soldiers sent to beat Russian peasants who have lodged a complaint against a rich landowner bent upon cutting down a forest, with which serfs had always enjoyed common rights, for the profit in the timber. After a judge’s unjust verdict in favor of the landowner, after the serfs send packing the men who appeared to cut their timber, the landowner requests government troops to enforce the unjust verdict by beating the serfs to death with rods packed onboard the train. Tolstoy examines this great chain of injustice from the rich landowner’s arrogance and greed, to the government judge’s feeble acquiesence to power, to the soldiers’ blind obedience to administer the famished serfs’ inhumane punishment and asks why any of this must play out as it does.
