Overview

"There is only one problem with this book: once you start reading you can't stop! It should be in all the church libraries. It would be an excellent gift, especially to Sunday school teachers and others who tell or read stories to others." --Provident Book Finder


Long hailed as one of the world's greatest writers, Leo Tolstoy is best known for his novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina. Yet the popularity of his shorter works--including the two dozen collected here--attests to his prowess as master of the short story.

From the title work, "Walk in the Light," a parable that reflects Tolstoy's fascination with the early Christians, to beloved tales such as "Ivan the Fool," "A Prisoner in the Caucasus," and "What Men Live By," the stories in this volume have stood the test of time both as fiction and reflections on the meaning and content of Christian faith.
