C. S. Lewis (1898-1963)
Today’s Peterson article in the Deseret News recommends C. S. Lewis:
Hardly controversial, but intended to nudge and remind those who might not yet have read him, or, even, those who may have forgotten how very good he is.
I love C. S. Lewis. I cannot open “The Screwtape Letters” and read a page without seeing a description of myself. And because I’m a geek, “The Discarded Image” is one of my all-time favorite books ever.
It’s funny how Mormons’ love of C.S. Lewis drives some people crazy. A commenter named “A Scientist” at the Deseret News site insists that since Lewis was an orthodox Trinitarian and Mormons are not, they can’t possibly understand him. But there’s no more reason to believe that non-Trinitarians can’t understand Trinitarians than that Trinitarians can’t understand non-Trinitarians, and if the latter is true, how would “A Scientist” possibly have knowledge of what Mormons understand?
