The Kingdom of God is Within You (Google eBook)
In the words of the translator of this volume "The Kingdom of God is Within You" is "one of the most remarkable studies of the social and psychological condition of the modern world." In "The Kingdom of God is Within You" Tolstoy expounds upon his earlier work "What I Believe." Tolstoy believes that the true message of Christ is one of peace, love and harmony and he draws sharp contrast to the church doctrine of his time in which he finds the absence of any commandment against violence a perversion of Christ's teachings.
