James Baldwin by James A. Haught
"James Baldwin, arguably America's greatest black writer, was a popular Pentecostal preacher in Harlem at age 14 - but at 17 he renounced religion as a sham. It happened when "I began to read again . . . I began, fatally, with Dostoevski." See also: Haught on the postmodernist attack on the Enlightenment
