Alexander Solzchenitsyn (1918-    ), a famous Russian author, was imprisoned by Joseph Stalin from 1945-1953.  He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1970 and was expelled from the country in 1974.  Alexander Solzhenitsyn proceeded to publish his telling book The Gulag Archipelago, 1974-79, which won international acclaim. In May of 1983, as he received the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion, Solzhenitsyn expressed:

“Instead of the ill-advised hopes of the last two centuries, which have reduced us to insignificance and brought us to the brink of nuclear and non-nuclear death, we can only reach with determination for the warm hand of God, which we have so rashly and self-confidently pushed away.”

In commenting on the forces precipitating our culture’s decay, he stated laconically:

“Man has forgotten God, that is why this has happened.”
