The Russian Messenger
"Brothers Karamozov" was the final novel by Dostoyevsky. He spent nearly two years writing the book before it was completed in November 1880. Dostoyevsky intended it to be the first part in an epic story titled, "The Life of a Great Sinner," but he died less than four months after its publication.

Terryl Givens: "This work is unparalleled in the courage with which it asks the hardest questions a believer can pose to his own faith in God; and it finds the will to affirm ultimate goodness and value in the midst of an almost overwhelming conception of human evil and suffering."
