Matthew 4:1-11;


Our purpose in this paper is to analyze the writings of this penetrating author in order to determine his concept of sin and forgiveness. The sources for this research will be the Constance Garnett translations, the accuracy of which will not be questioned. The thought of Dostoyevsky which we will study is his thought as he expressed it in his major novels, although, by way of introduction, certain aspects of his life and character will be noted. Reference is frequently made to the opinions of several of Dostoyevsky’s principa1 interpreters. This is usually done by way of illustration, or in substantiation of evidence already derived directly from the writings or Dostoyevsky himself.
