Artfully written and cleverly constructed, this biography in the Christian Encounters Series gives readers a compelling look at the world-famous writer and the social, political, and scientific forces that set the stage for his literary greatness.

Dostoevsky walked toward the firing squad in Semenovsky Square in the heart of St. Petersburg, Russia. Newly fallen snow blew wildly through the windswept grounds lined by state police. It was a wintry morning, and the sun shone a suffused haze through thick clouds. In the center of the square, seven severe officers stood like statues with rifles at the ready as Dostoevsky and his fellow prisoners looked on. While counting his last steps on earth, Dostoevsky was spared by an order to imprisonment in Siberia--where he would be transformed in the crucible of peasant life.

In this gripping, beautifully written biography, readers get an intimate inside look at the life of this world-famous author who explored human nature perhaps more deeply than any other. Who, under the watchful eye of a suppressive Russian government, fought for the common people and fought for truth. "Fyodor Dostoevsky" artfully weaves the cultural, political, and scientific forces at play that set the stage for his world-renowned writing. Amid all this, readers discover the humanity of this iconic writer and his lifelong battle to exemplify the teachings of Jesus.
