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. Special thanks to ( for the theme song, "Russia, Russia, My Love." The Kingdom of God is Within You by Leo Tolstoy is in the public domain. The coverart is by Russian portrait artist Ivan Kramskoy. Produced and narrated by Vic Zarley.
