Working on #27 – C. S. Lewis Blows My Mind

17 Nov


I just picked up The Four Loves at my local bookstore to get started on #27 of my 30 before 30 list: to read all the great works of C. S. Lewis. I’m on page one of the introduction and he’s already twisted my mind into a pretzel.

“Divine love is Gift-love. The Father gives all He is and has to the Son. The Son gives Himself back to the Father, and gives Himself to the world, and for the world to the Father, and thus gives the world (in Himself) back to the Father too.”

*Ka-pchooooo!* Page one, people. Mind. Blown.

I thought I’ve give myself a break and intersperse his heavier works with The Chronicles of Narnia, but truth be told I’ve read none of the famous children’s series. I know, I know. My book lover card should be revoked. I also picked up The Magician‘s Nephew yesterday, but I was wondering: should I go in order? What’s the best way to experience Narnia? You who have read all of The Chronicles tell me, what’s the best way to go about it? I leave myself in your capable hands.
