Today is C. S. Lewis’s birthday.
He was born in 1898 in Belfast and named Clive Staples. He didn’t like Clive and took the nickname Jack when he was a boy.
No one since Paul has informed me more than this thinker and writer. I’m so grateful to God for what he did through Lewis.
I don’t have a favorite quote, I have about a hundred of ’em.
But near the top of my list would be “aim at heaven, get earth thrown in, aim at earth, and get neither” it’s from memory and from _Mere Christianity_ but may not be exactly right. That book, by the way, is the most influential non-biblical book written, in my opinion.
Thanks be to God for creating and using this man.
