C.S.Lewis was someone I never appreciated much until the past couple of years. But now, I really do appreciate him. McGrath in his biography of Lewis explains excellently how Lewis saw literature as exciting longings that only the gospel could fulfil. That was when Lewis made sense to me and a lot of literature started to as well. With the kids we were listening to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe yesterday (BBC dramatized edition) and I really felt Lewis’ story warming my heart. He fills out what the gospel means for those longing for a new and better land with the Lion of Judah. And isn’t this what we long for?
