ha! Only in CL can we talk about Camus and Christ at the same time!

Only in CL?

Not true... I've met some charismatic evangelicals who read books and hold lectures involving "worldviews" etc, and they include things like Camus, Nietzche etc.

Unless of course you include them in CL (in a kind of Vatican II-style philosophical maneouvre ;p )

But then, I don't think I would be as interested in CL as I am if it was purely about what kind of literature is acceptable.

Good point, I guess you're right.

Keir,

You're right, CL isn't about acceptable literature and I don't think I did the conversation justice, but what I find strikes me about the way we talked about Camus was not as a 'worldview' but rather we took his desires at face value and asked ourselves what his desires had to do with our desires. In fact, by the end of the conversation I was really loving Camus because I recognized in his heart the same longing for the impossible that my heart yearns for.

What I find interesting is that I am at honme with Camus, because he has a certain genius for expressing the desire of the hearts of men, in the same way I am at home with Peguy. Peguy and Camus . . . not two frenchmen you would usually characterize together.
