Russian writer, author of "War and Peace" as well as "Anna Karenina," was not just a writer, but a Christian anarchist and pacifist, who believed in the very literal interpretation of the ethical teachings from the Sermon on the Mount. He wrote "The Kingdom of God is Within You" which profoundly impacted both Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi.
