Summary:
"Part guide to Christian living, part spiritual autobiography, The Way of Jesus is Jay Parini\'s exploration of what Jesus really meant, his effort to put love first in our daily lives. Called "one of those writers who can do anything" by Stacy Schiff in the New York Times Book Review, Parini--a lifelong Christian who has at times wavered and questioned his beliefs--recounts his own efforts to follow Jesus\'s example, examines the contours of Christian thinking, and describes the solace and structure one can find in the rhythms of the church calendar. Parini\'s refreshingly undogmatic approach to Christian thinking incorporates teachings from other religions, as well as from poets and other writers who have helped Parini along his path to understanding"--

Too ill to continue beyond the tiny rail station at Astapovo, he believes that he is dying alone, whle over one hundred newspapermen camp outside awaiting hourly reports on his condidtion. A brilliant recreation of the mind and tortured soul of one of the world\'s greatest novelists, The Last Station is a richly inventive novel that dances bewitchingly between fact and fiction.<BR>
