If you’re intrigued by Dostoyevsky but can’t bring yourself to read any of his lengthy fiction, get a copy of Henri de Lubac’s The Drama of Atheist Humanism. It ranks in my top 10 books of all time. The reader will be rewarded with Nietzsche, Feuerbach (the link between Hegel and Marx), Comte, Kierkegaard, and, of course, Dostoyevsky (“Dostoyevsky as Prophet”):
