Tolstoy’s Twenty-Three Tales

Last week, I used selections from 19th-century Russian writer Leo Tolstoy’s Twenty-Three Tales to teach the reading portion of my summer school class for middle-schoolers. The students enjoyed Tolstoy’s use of biblical imagery and retold parables, even if they didn’t know it. We read:

  • God Sees the Truth, But Waits
  • Ilyas
  • Evil Allures, But Good Endures

I’m sure all of them are excellent.


About B Treece
loved by God before I ever loved Him, saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone by the authority of the Bible alone to the glory of God alone, made to enjoy Him forever, happily married with wonder-filled children.
