Book review: Witness, by J.G. Bennett

I've just published my review of J.G. Bennett's autobiography Witness. Bennett was a perpetual "seeker", always looking for the secret of spiritual enlightenment and always more or less disappointed by what he found. He seems to me the perfect illustration of what I have called elsewhere "the Casaubon delusion", after the character in George Eliot's Middlemarch.
