  1. There are many of those you mentioned that I have not read but hope to read eventually, such as Orthodoxy. Some, like you, I have no desire to read, like the Law book. I’ve felt suffocated whenever I’ve looked at the book, even though some have told me that he was a universalist. The Dostoevsky one, Brothers Karamazov, I think, is worth familiarizing yourself with on some level, even if all you do is read about it on wikipedia or read the Cliff-notes. I have a slightly hard time with Dostoevsky’s style, but what’s cool about the Brothers Karamazov is the notable tangents: the story of the Grand Inquisitor’s interaction with Jesus, the discussion of the problem of evil, etc.

  2. Chris: Thanks; my pleasure.

    James: Orthodoxy is one of the ones I’d like to read. I hear nothing but great things about Dostoevsky, and The Brothers Karamazov in particular, but it’s hard for me to invest any length of time in fiction. That’s what I have movies and television for, ya know?

  3. Yeah, and the Brothers Karamazov with William Shatner, Yul Brynner, and, well, that guy who played Laura’s mean teacher on Little House (whose name escapes me) is awesome! But it does not have some of the theological discussions!
