Tolstoy communicates the teachings of Jesus through brilliantly crafted Russian characters and imaginative stories.
"Where Love Is, There God Is Also," written in 1885, has been widely told from the pulpit, though few know its proper title or origin. It is the story of a humble shoemaker who takes in tired and hungry guests while waiting for a visit from Christ.
In "The Three Hermits," a bishop encounters an unusual trio. The hermits have dedicated their lives to worshiping God, yet they struggle to recite the Lord's Prayer when the concerned bishop teaches it to them. His efforts lead to an important lesson in holiness and prayer.
In the third story in this collection, "What Men Live By," an angel is banished to earth until he has learned what is in men, what is not given to men, and what men live by.
