QuotationLa Peste-understandable in the light of Bonhoeffer's admirable prison letters. In connection with Camus and people like him-see this line of Bonhoeffer: "I often ask myself why a Christian instinct frequently draws one more to the religionless than to the religious, by which I mean not with any intention of evangelizing them but rather, I might almost say, in ‘brotherhood.'" (p. 165)
