It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad..
C. S. Lewis

  1. C.S Lewis was a brilliant man, an erudite scholar, an intellectual, a Classicist, a philosopher - he was also an Anglican. Many of his published works retain strong readership even to this very day - among them, most famously, his ''Narnia'' stories, and his apologetical works. Paradoxically, the Narnia stories, which Lewis said were about Christ, are praised by a world increasingly enamoured of secularism. Also, his apologetics are praised by Christians of all different traditions, ranging from hardline Fundamentalist even to traditional Roman Catholic. I think that these facts alone, taken of themselves, are sufficient evidence to show the danger of Lewis' work, as I shall try to explain.
