That must have been Heart of Darkness
by Joseph Conrad. I have virtually no patience for it, let alone for the insistence in school curricula on including it.

Quoted a theologian, eh?
Unless it's possible to argue that The Poisonwood Bible
features a number of amateur theologians, that would probably have to be O homem que calculava
by Malba Tahan (pen name of Brazilian writer and mathematics professor Júlio César de Mello e Souza), translated into English as The Man Who Counted
by Leslie Clark and Alistair Reed. It quotes from a number of people, including Plato, who I guess could be considered a theologian. One of the characters in the book is also a (fictional) theologian.The last thing you read whose author was not writing in their native language.
