I once heard someone say, “C.S. Lewis sure does a lot of people’s heavy lifting.” Yes, and for good reason. It’s difficult to say it better. The video below about Lewis’s life sums-up the goal this blog. Faith, intellectual honesty, and imaginative freedom are made for each other. (Understatement)
The following video is an outstanding overview of Lewis’s life and contribution.
Here is what Lewis says in, The Weight of Glory:
“Do you think I am trying to weave a spell? Perhaps I am; but remember your fairy tales. Spells are used for breaking enchantments as well as for inducing them. And you and I have need of the strongest spell that can be found to wake us from the evil enchantment of worldliness which has been laid upon us for nearly a hundred years. Almost our whole education has been directed to silencing this shy, persistent, inner voice.”
