one more excerpt, if you like

"[T]o take, in any measure, what Mr. Eliot's poetry has to give is to be educated into a new understanding of the nature of precision in thought, and at the same time to experience intimately an emotional and spiritual discipline. And this holds, irrespective of whether or not the reader subscribes to Christian doctrine."

THE LOGIC OF CHRISTIAN DISCRIMINATION 
FR Leavis' review of George Every's 'Poetry and Personal Responsibility' 
SCRUTINY
1949 -Q4, 
pp. 339-344

excerpt

"As for Christian Discrimination, it needs to be said that there 
can be no substitute for the scrupulous and disinterested approach 
of the literary critic. If Christian belief and Christian attitudes 
have really affected the critic's sensibility, then they will play their 
due part in his perceptions and judgments, without his summoning 
his creeds and doctrines to the job of discriminating and pronouncing."
