For religious and confessing Christians, Johnson is of special interest for being a devout Anglican believer and a rationalist during the Enlightenment; the backdrop is a conversation with philosophers such as Voltaire, Hume and the American deists. The rest of the volume includes more from Johnson's monumental literary achievements: excerpts from his preface to his Dictionary of the English Language; from his fiction work The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia; from his Lives of the Poets: and from his preface to his collection The Plays of William Shakespeare.
