While I was at work today I was in the same room with one of the new people whom I’ve been irritated with because they loud and opinionated and seemingly in want of a lot of attention. But as I was growing more annoyed, I thought of Aloysha and what he might do. It was strange, but calming and it got me thinking about the positive effect this book can have. It seems its art is in its theology of goodness. Unexpected.
