50 years ago today

C. S. Lewis died (yes, same day as JFK and Huxley). Next Friday. on the 29th will be his 115th birthday.

Right now, I would say my favorite quote is “Aim at heaven, get earth thrown in. Aim at earth, get neither.”

Do you have a favorite quote?

Speaking of today and the three men’s death, Peter Kreeft wrote an interesting conversation between the three of them, _Between Heaven and Hell_. It is a very interesting and easy read (but – to me – with a less than satisfying ending).

Thanks be to God for the life, mind and pen of C. S. Lewis (yes, he used a pen and hired typists). No one outside of Scripture has helped me more.
