When Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace was published in 1869, his genius was immediately recognized by people all over the world. In the later part of Leo Tolstoy's life, however, he began to share his deepest thoughts about Christianity in his writing. His definition of Christianity was not the same as the priests and bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church where there was so much pomp and pageantry. Tolstoy could care less for all that ceremony. He was a radical follower of Jesus Christ's teachings, particularly as found in the Sermon on the Mount (including Christ's controversial admonitions to "resist not evil," to "love your enemies" and to "turn the other cheek.")

This book you are about to hear shares Tolstoy's thoughtful commentary on where TRUE Christianity lies and why and how the Church has gotten Christ's teaching so wrong.

Author uses Tolstoy for own agenda

Don't waste your time on listening to this one if your looking to listen to Tolstoy's extraordinary book. This self-proclaimed former "New-Ager" turned "Christian-Extremist" (a.k.a. Fundamentalist) doesn't just read Tolstoy's spiritually-provocative book, he uses it as a platform to bash most all of Tolstoy's arguments in the book (as well as other Christian sects opposed to his views) and uses this "audiobook" for his proselytizing efforts.
