Thoughts & Reflections

C.S. Lewis, former atheist-turned-Christian, was a brilliant English lay theologian and scholar of the mid-1900s. Many of his books remain at the top of theological best-selling lists, as well as a few non-theological tomes. Many of us grew up reading The Chronicles Of Narnia, a wonderful children's series with strong parallels to Christianity. Here are a few of Lewis' more famous quotations:

Quote: “Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.” Source: “On Stories: And Other Essays on Literature” (1966) Quote: “Joy is the serious business of heaven.” Source: “Letters to Malcolm” (1964) Quote: “There is but one good; that is God. Everything else is good when it looks to Him and bad when it turns from Him.” Source: “The Great Divorce” (1945)

Quote: “Each day we are becoming a creature of splendid glory or one of unthinkable horror.” Source: “Mere Christianity” (1952)
