Dostoevsky on the Bible

From The Brothers Karamazov, Book VI “The Russian Monk,” Chapter 1 “Father Zossima and His Visitors”

Father Zossima says:

What a book the Bible is, what a miracle, what strength is given with it to man. It is like a mould cast of the world and man and human nature, everything is there, and a law for everything for all the ages. And what mysteries are solved and revealed . . .

. . . I only speak from rapture, and forgive my tears, for I love the Bible . . .

The people are lost without the word of God, for their soul is athirst for the Word and for all that is good.
