Happy Birthday Jack!

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.
