Dostoyevsky tries to show the importance of believing in God in the novel The Brothers Karamazov.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky was raised in a very religious environment. Much of Dostoyevsky’s early learning was taught to him by his loving and devout Christian mother. His father was not as much a positive influence on him as his mother because he was a drunk. Dostoyevsky’s parental figures serve as the two ends of the spectrum of behavior.

Dostoyevsky wrote this classic at a time when the influence of the Church in Russia was weakening and ideals of other societies were becoming more popular. This was of great concern to Dostoyevsky because he thought the new ideas would not bring any good to his country. He wrote the novel The Brothers Karamazov, which showed the two ways people can act and which road is the right one to take in life.
