You would expect a professor of English Literature in a prestigious English university to exalt the value of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Johnson, Burns, Bronte, Shelly, Keats, Byron, etc. And rightly so.

With that as a background, how amazing is the statement C. S. Lewis made in his essay on Christianity and Literature:

“The salvation of a single soul is more important than the production or preservation of all the epics and tragedies in the world.” C. S. Lewis, Christian Reflections, p. 10.

  1. Thank you, Pastor Sam, so much for reminding us of this beautiful and true statement of such a faithful man of God. It is encouraging to hear that one so respected in higher education remained so true to his faith and so focused, keeping his priorities in the order that God created us to maintain. It is highly unfortunate that this seems to be such a rarity in such scholarly circles these days. Hope it’s okay, but I think I may have to pick up your quote and use it for my fbook status. 🙂 May God bless you mightily. Much love from all of the Lollar’s!
