    About " Leo Tolstoy "

  • Leo Tolstoy

    Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy Russian commonly Leo Tolstoy in Anglophone countries was a Russian writer who primarily wrote novels and short stories Later in life, he also wrote plays and essays His two most famous works, the novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina, are acknowledged as two of the greatest novels of all time and a pinnacle of realist fiction Many consider Tolstoy to have been one of the world s greatest novelists Tolstoy is equally known for his complicated and paradoxical persona and for his extreme moralistic and ascetic views, which he adopted after a moral crisis and spiritual awakening in the 1870s, after which he also became noted as a moral thinker and social reformer.His literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus, centering on the Sermon on the Mount, caused him in later life to become a fervent Christian anarchist and anarcho pacifist His ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as The Kingdom of God Is Within You, were to have a profound impact on such pivotal twentieth century figures as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.


  • Thanks to Aldiko.This is my second attempt to familiarize myself with Kindle type books. For experiments, I always choose shorter ones. This is a short story spreading over some 19 pages. I read it in one sitting. I liked the story.About the Story:It is a simple parable that explains the meaning of our life here on earth. The world view adapted by Tolstoy is Christian. We are created. And life is a gift from God. This gift is not for one's selfish enjoyment. One has to live it to the full by liv [...]

  • Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.There is an old parable often told and I will give you the most abridged summary of it I can: "A man is trapped on his house during a flood and the water is rising. He ask God to help him and after numerous attempts by people to rescue him by boat and helicopter fail (because he is assured God will come and rescue him) he dies. He goes to heaven and ask why God did not come down and save him and God says, "I sent you boats AND a helicopter, what did you think th [...]

  • “The world moves, not by our skill, but by God’s will….You are in despair because you wish to live for your own happiness.”Classic tale of shoemaker Martin Avdeith who has a dream in which Christ tells him He will come visit him the next day. While waiting for a visit from Christ, Martin helps 3 others instead. At the end of the day, he is wondering why the Savior did not come. Martin realizes that the Savior really had come to him that day and he had received Him, as he reads: “Inasmu [...]

  • A universal spiritual story that must be read by any body. It's a very touched simple story. The beautiful spiritual intimacy between God and man. I always love the way Tolstoy wrote his stories which always contain of social, moral, religious, and spiritual issues. His works are not only wonderful but also meaningful and timeless. Indeed Tolstoy is not only one of the world's greatest novelists, he is also a moral philosopher.

  • Tolstoy espoused on the lessons of Matthew 25:40. The lessons of this short story are a guide to how we ought to live our lives. A life lived for one’s own happiness is not worth living.In the story, Martin Avdyeeich, the cobbler, had a dream wherein he heard the voice of Christ that He will come and visit him. Martin then had three strange experiences in which he came face to face with needy people. He helped them. He waited in his shop until late hours and Christ never visited. Then he stumb [...]

  • beautiful, inspiring, soothing, with a simple but clear message. my favourite exerpts are from the first and the last one:"Martin, du redest toricht, wir haben kein Recht uns uber Gottes taten ein Urteil zu erlauben. Der Mensch denkt, und Gott lenkt. Deinem Sohn hat Gott bestimmt zu sterben - dir aber zu leben. Also muss es so richtig sein. Wenn du aber darum verzweifelt bist, so kommt das daher, weil du nur zu deiner eigenen Freude leben mochtest."Wo die Liebe ist, da ist auch Gott"den Menschen [...]

  • I enjoyed these short stories. I always enjoy a different perspective on God that is not technically scripture. A going quick read that will remind you boldly how we should be more like Christ.

  • This is definitely a book for religious Christians. Tolstoy's "Where Love is there is God Also" is a short story about an impoverished cobbler who is old and without children or a wife in czarist Russia. One day, he receives a visit from a traveling priest he used to know who wishes to have his leather bound Bible repaired. As they talk, the cobbler admits that he has become estranged from God since the death of his young son. The priest speaks words of encouragement and promises to pray for the [...]

  • Three parables/stories, each with a lesson for Christ-like behavior. The stories are: "Where Love Is, There God Is Also", "The Three Hermits", & "What Men Live By". Great quote: "I have learned that God does not wish men to live each for himself, and therefore He has not revealed to them what they each need for themselves, but He wishes them to live in union, and therefore He has revealed to them what is necessary for each and for all together."

  • My fist Tolstoy book. I hope to read many more. This was a short-story and it was simple and beautiful. This book does better at capturing the "true" essence of Christianity than most religious texts.

  • I hope so as I have been hurt by love , constantly. it mean that God has hurt me ?what is your answer , my beloved Tolstoy ?

  • Matthew 25:35-40 English Standard Version (ESV)35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see [...]

  • A beautiful story at any time of the year but especially appropriate to read at Christmas. An old shoemaker, Martin Avdeitch, has seemingly lost all and wishes only to be allowed to die. As the story progresses he learns valuable, eternal truths.The message is clear; "As to your own despair-that comes because you wish to live for your own happiness." So what to do; to live to serve God. Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it [...]

  • Tolstoy preaches the GospelThere are some who might consider this story trite and contrived, but as a man of faith, I found it inspiring. It is doubtful Tolstoy will convert anyone with this tale, but believers will enjoy the story of a man who puts his faith in action. This is not a conversion story but a parable of the finest order.

  • Tolstoy, sevgi temasını okuyucunun gözüne sokmadan kendi çıkarımları ile anlaması için güzel ve akıcı bir üslup kullanmış, sade ve anlaşılır bir dil ile yazılan kitap 7 hikayeden oluşuyor. davranışlarımızın beslendiği karakterimizin aslında ne kadar güzellikler barındırdığını bir kez daha bu öyküler sayesinde görüyoruz.

  • An absolutely beautiful and moving short story of an elderly man who expects Christ as a visitor after reading a fair amount of the NT, but instead finds that his visitor comes by his kindness and generosity to those less fortunate.I loved every word of it. A+++++++

  • I know that it says that there is not a Kindle edition, but I read it on Kindle.This is a charming short story that can be easily be added to any list of "things to read at Christmas." Where is Jesus Christ likely to be seen?

  • This is the first thing I’ve ever read by Tolstoy but it makes me want to read more. It was a beautiful short story about loving the “least of these”.

  • [258] IN a certain city dwelt Martin Avdyeeich, the cobbler. He lived in a cellar, a wretched little hole with a single window. The window looked up towards the street, and through it Martin could just see the passers-by. It is true that he could see little more than their boots, but Martin Avdyeeich could read a man's character by his boots, so he needed no more. Martin Avdyeeich had lived long in that one place, and had many acquaintances. Few indeed were the boots in that neighborhood which h [...]

  • A short and sweet story about serving Christ by loving others. The translation was adequate but I hope to find a better version so I can read this on a regular basis with my family.

  • هناك قصة قديمة مماثلة من بعض الوجوه، سوف أسردها مختصرة ، تقول القصة: "ان رجلا محاصرا في منزله أثناء الفيضان والمياه آخذة في الارتفاع سأل الله أن ينقذه وبعد محاولات عديدة من قبل الناس لإنقاذه عن طريق القوارب وطائرات الهليكوبتر ولكنه رفضها جميعا، لأنه أكد لهم ان الله سوف يأتي و [...]
