    The Kingdom of God is Within You - Tolstoy

    There are two translations of this text that I know of-- one by Constance Garnett and one by Leo Wiener.

    I'm weary of Garnett given some of the criticism she has received. Weiner's translation seems competent-- you can read a few pages of it on Amazon-- but yet most publishers seem to go with the Garnett translation.

    Does anyone have a recommendation?

    Garnett seems a bit biased to me. Ive read translations by a man named Fuller who seemed to have more competent view. My edition is pretty old though.Good Luck!
