Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'Friday, 29th January, I do not like ?Brand?. A religion that takes no account of actuality is no use to humanity. And, after all I think that religion was made for man, and not man made for religion. Christ is dead, and infinitely more use as a tradition than in life. Christ was not like Brand ? he pitied humanity. Brand is inclined, if not to sneer, at least, to treat with impatience the odd ways of man. Read - ?Brand? (Ibsen)'
