The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis

The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis My rating: 5 of 5 stars I read this five years ago and, prompted by Louis Markos’ chapter about it in Heaven and Hell, picked it up again. Clearly, I read it too soon in my own faith life the first time and now am giving it the proper [Read More…]
