When he was a younger man, at his Aunts' estate, he fell in love with their ward, Katyusha Katerina Mikhailovna Maslova , who is goddaughter to one Aunt and treated badly by the other.
However, after going to the city and becoming corrupted by drink and gambling, he returns two years later to his Aunts' estate and rapes Katyusha, leaving her pregnant. She is thrown out by the aunts when it becomes known that she is pregnant. He later realises that he had treated her like a prostitute, hence his abiding sense of guilt. Ten years later, Nekhlyudov sits on a jury which sentences the girl, Maslova, to prison in Siberia for murder poisoning a client who beat her, a crime of which she is innocent.
The book narrates his attempts to help her practically, but focuses on his personal mental and moral struggle. He goes to visit her in prison, meets other prisoners, hears their stories, and slowly comes to realize that below his gilded aristocratic world, yet invisible to it, is a much larger world of cruelty, injustice and suffering.
Story after story he hears and even sees people chained without cause, beaten without cause, immured in dungeons for life without cause, and a twelve-year-old boy sleeping in a lake of human dung from an overflowing latrine because there is no other place on the prison floor, but clinging in a vain search for love to the leg of the man next to him, until the book achieves the bizarre intensity of a horrific fever dream.
He decides to give up his property and pass ownership on to his peasants, leaving them to argue over the different ways in which they can organise the estate, and he follows Katyusha into exile, planning on marrying her. The catchy "Love Comes Down" was chosen as the band's first single and the music video - featuring much dance choreography - was a far more polished effort and as a result, received far more airplay on MTV than "Crimes" ever did.
It would be three years before REZ returned to the studio to record their next album and much changed in the Contemporary Christian music industry during that time.
REZ was no longer the dominant force in Christian rock ; instead, Stryper had burst onto the scene in all their yellow-and-black glory, bringing Christian metal to the mainstream with To Hell with the Devil in , which sold millions of albums and made the band a mainstay on MTV. Amy Grant had scored her first No. Even Christian alternative music had made inroads into the mainstream when The 77s signed with Island Records and their self-titled album received a favorable review in Rolling Stone.
In addition, the Jesus People USA community established the annual Cornerstone Festival during this period, which would serve as a springboard to mainstream success for future Christian artists like Sixpence None the Richer and P. Even the lineup of REZ changed during this time as well. Bassist Jim Denton left to attend theological seminary and was replaced by long-time REZ roadie and songwriter Roy Montroy , who would soon become a major creative force in the band.
Although REZ had been left out of the mainstream success which arguably the band had spearheaded for others, REZ was nevertheless more interested in using its music to speak plainly to both non-Christians about the reality of God and to Christians about their responsibility to the disenfranchised and hurting in the world around them.
To that end, REZ returned to the studio in , and the result was Silence Screams , a hybrid of blues , hard rock and heavy metal that served as a musical blueprint for all of the band's successive releases. Sporting unsettling cover art, Silence Screams deals forcefully with social concerns such as abortion , greed, racial profiling and even terrorism , proving that—as they did with confronting apartheid in —the band was once again ahead of the curve.
The album is also unique in that it is the first to have been released on the band's own record label, Grrr Records, a wordplay on Myrrh Records , the most successful Contemporary Christian record label at that time. Now, the band could exercise complete creative and financial control over their music. Creatively invigorated, REZ released a new studio album every 18 months on average.
Each album dealt with current topics of social and spiritual concern, and each release contained more and more blues influence, thanks to lead singer Glenn Kaiser , who was beginning a new career as a blues artist outside of REZ.
With Kaiser focusing more of his attention on his solo work, Roy Montroy became a greater contributor to REZ, and for Reach of Love , he wrote every single track, a feat never accomplished before by any member of the band. However, there was a growing sense - not just among music critics but also within the band itself - that the formula was growing stale and that REZ had fallen into a creative rut.
It came in the form of Ty Tabor , guitarist and co-lead singer of King's X. The result of Ty Tabor 's influence was Lament , released in Unlike any of the band's previous work, Lament is the band's first concept album , a song cycle about one man's disillusionment with the harshness and cruelty of life and his growing realization that things cannot change unless he experiences spiritual redemption.
