Tolkien vs. Lewis on Marriage

This piece is fascinating for a couple of reasons.

First, it shows Tolkien in fine fettle taking apart a real lapse in Lewis’ normally clear thinking (and, I suspect, a lapse due to the fundamental DNA coding error in Anglicanism traceable back to Henry VIII).

But second, and just as importantly, it is written by and for Evangelicals who historically have been wary of papists like Tolkien while regarding Lewis as a sort of patron saint.  It’s good to see the flagship Evangelical journal Christianity Today really struggling to internalize the full Catholic theology of marriage like that.  More please!
