The Excentric Genius or Beyond Narnia

“You are never too old to set a new goal or to dream a new dream”

C.S.Lewis 1896-1963 was called an excentric genius and reluctant prophet by reviewers of his many works around the time of his death. Feeling the power of Aslan weave his  wisdom and self-sacrificing love over my heart no matter how many times I have read, listened or watched the stories I understand the praise but hope the man did not let the title of prophet go to his head. After all that would be a direct contraction to his profoundly professed Christian beliefs. The reluctant part infers he did not and I like to believe this of the man , his comments oft quoted touch on  truths in a way I wonder even he guessed at.

“If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy the only logical conclusion is that I was made for another world.”

“Christianity asserts

     that every human being

      is going to live forever.”
