In Orthodoxy, Chesterton wrote one of the greatest works of Christian apologetics. A brilliant wit, Chesterton possessed a light writing style that paired common sense with the philosophy of Christian personalism in an accessible form. A few decades earlier, on the other side of the continent, Leo Tolstoy wrote of his own spiritual quests and his journey from youthful nihilism and disbelief to his existential crisis of adulthood. He asked: Does life possess any meaning that is not nullified by the certainty of death? Count Tolstoy found spiritual healing by turning to the simple faith of the country folk. This volume collects the views of two great writers and thinkers on questions of religion and man's spiritual quest.
