What Men Live By (and Where Love Is, There God Is Also)
What Men Live By - and Where Love Is, There God Is Also Author:Leo Tolstoy These stories have the most beautiful theme that any stories could ever have. They are about God's infinite love and tender mercy. — When such a magnificent novelist as Leo Tolstoy writes of God's love in terms of simple people and their love of Him and of each other, a unique literature is created that penetrates the heart and grips the soul. — ... more »Leo Tolstoy was more than a great 19th century novelist. In his later years he was converted to the doctrine of Christian love. From that time on, moral and social elements played a great role in Tolstoy's works.
"What Men Live By" is the story of a poor shoemaker, his wife and children. They took in a naked stranger and with him learned three divine lessons: 1) What is given to men; 2) What is not given to men; 3) What men live by.
"Where Love Is, There God Is Also"--based on Matthew 25:35-40--is about an old shoemaker who lived alone. He started to read the NEw Tstament; his life began to change; and one day he experienced when and how Christ comes to men. (from the dust jacket)« less
