Even better than that I was able to sit down with him over lunch and talking about Fyodor Dostoevsky and his writings as I plodded through The Brothers Karamazov. Spiess is something of an expert on Dostoevsky and inspired me to press on, though he did tell me I'd not picked the easiest book to start with! His helpful hint was that Dostoevsky hides the resurrection from view in the book knowing that that's where the answers to his questions are found. Some have read Karamazov without catching the answer and been inspired to atheism... but perhaps that's not the only conclusion we have to draw.
