One of my readers is criticizing C.S. Lewis for not having an “orthodox” view of Scripture

…by which he means “a view of Scripture that maps exactly with the view espoused by very conservative Protestants like me.”

Of course, from a Catholic perspective, the average Protestant view of Scripture is unorthodox too, since it is some variation on the human tradition of sola scriptura. Pot. Kettle. Black.

The exchange about this in my comments box reminds me of this piece I wrote long ago. Me, I’ll go on being immensely grateful for Lewis and leave others to draw up the heresy charges.
