“The avoiding, in many times and places, has proved so difficult that a very large part of the human race failed to achieve it. But in our own time and place it is extremely easy. Avoid silence, avoid solitude, avoid any train of thought that leads off the beaten track. Concentrate on money, sex, status, health and (above all) on your own grievances. Keep the radio on. Live in a crowd. Use plenty of sedation. If you must read books, select them very carefully. But you’d be safer to stick to the papers. You’ll find the advertisements helpful; especially those with a sexy or a snobbish appeal.” (Pages 168–169)
“On the whole, the New Testament seemed, if not hostile, yet unmistakably cold to culture. I think we can still believe culture to be innocent after we have read the New Testament; I cannot see that we are encouraged to think it important.” (Page 15)
“Everywhere, except in theology, there has been a vigorous growth of scepticism about scepticism itself.” (Page 162)
“A man is never so proud as when striking an attitude of humility” (Page 14)
“A theology which denies the historicity of nearly everything in the Gospels to which Christian life and affections and thought have been fastened for nearly two millennia—which either denies the miraculous altogether or, more strangely, after swallowing the camel of the Resurrection strains at such gnats as the feeding of the multitudes—if offered to the uneducated man can produce only one or other of two effects. It will make him a Roman Catholic or an atheist. What you offer him he will not recognize as Christianity.” (Page 153)
This volume will be of special interest to people whose philosophy runs to futility, determinism, and atheism.
Christian Reflections brings C.S. Lewis’ genius to a ready public. His fidelity to eternal verities comes like a clean, refreshing breeze to air increasingly polluted by ‘dialogues’ of the unsure.
Refreshing originality. . . A book that will both stimulate and tantalize.
