How this changed my life — 7 years ago
It took me a whole summer to get through this book. This book, along with Master and Margarita (Bulgakov) helped me to believe in God again. Can’t say I’m convinced, but open to it now.
Dostoevski proves the need for God in this work. In the absence of God, any Crime is possible (similar to the theme in Crime & Punnishment).
While on the subject, Bulgokov finished the Russian argument in favor of God by showing that proof of God is not necessary.
