C.S.Lewis, “The Great Divorce”

As discussed earlier, well not really discussed as I didn’t recieve any comments, I planned on reading some CS Lewis. I have finished reading The Great Divorce and I have to say that I am beginning to fall in love with C.S.Lewis and the way he writes in a format of illustrative narrative. The book takes the reader through a journey of hell and heaven. The contrasts presented between the “phantoms” who take a bus to heaven to present their case to heaven, and the “solid people” who reside in heaven and try to present the concept of grace are amazing. While reading about this book online I discovered that CS Lewis wrote this book in response to a book written about how all paths lead to good eventually. He was writing this book to show how much error there was in this philosophy. This is a great book and I would love to discuss this further with others. For now, here are a few great quotes from the book.

“Milton was right,” said my Teacher. “The choice of every lost sould can be expressed in the words, ‘Better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven.’ ….. There is always something they prefer to joy — that is, to reality.”

“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.’ All that are in Hell chose it.
