A relatively long discussion of Tolstoy's life and, in Davis' view, ultimately unfinished spiritual growth. There is analysis of two books, Anna Karenina and The Resurrection. Davis concludes Tolstoy failed to shed the need for dogma, and that this is a tragedy of our times because we are in change.
