Leo Tolstoy's short parable stands as a warmhearted treatise on faith's power to redeem the forsaken and ease one's pains. "Where Love is, there is God Also" follows a humble cobbler, Martin Avdeitch, who, having lost his entire family to poor health, decides to abandon his faith. Martin is visited by a missionary who convinces the cobbler to more closely study his Bible. Actor Walter Zimmerman, a veteran performer of Russian masterworks, is fluid and to-the-point, capturing the understated sorrow that belies the cobbler's quiet suffering. Tolstoy's story grapples with the age-old question of how a loving God can allow bad things to happen to good people.
