This book is one of the most brilliant novels ever written, a true literary masterpiece. It is the story of a young Russian student, Raskolnikov, who commits a murder in order to prove his greatness to himself. However, after committing the crime, Raskolnikov is alternately overcome with arrogance and haunted with deep regret. This gripping narrative accurately portrays the destructive nature of sin, and the false philosophies and false loves that can lead us far away from God. Dostoevsky spins a tale of redemption, true love and the miracle of God’s grace. These themes continue to ring out their truth throughout the ages.
