Brief Biography of A Famous Russian Novelist

             This brief biography brings Dostoevsky alive through his experiences, speeches and relationships. Wrongly accused of being a political dissident he was imprisoned for four years inSiberia. There he says he fully found Christ and developed his personal philosophy of life–that every person in every nation deserves respect because some of Christ can be found in almost everyone.

       He lovedRussiadeeply and was dismayed by atheistic voices leading young Russians astray. He also spoke against divisions between individuals and nations.

       He became one ofRussia’s most loved novelists, often portraying characters who learned, often through great trials and wrong choices, that following Christ was the way to live. His writing and conversations became his methods of teaching about God.

            Although a Christian he sometimes failed woefully to follow the Lord and finally decided that was only possible when we reached heaven. He was never afraid to speak about the importance of living for Christ even when ridiculed.

          This great Russian writer suffered from poor health most of his life but wrote diligently, often all night.

            An interesting book although some of Dostoevsky’s speeches that are quoted were several pages long. The speeches do reveal this man’s heart. His reputation is still outstanding in our present age.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.
