It’s not uncommon to hear people quote CS Lewis. I think for many folks, he should be considered the Protestant pope if ever there should’ve been one. He’s written many books. I remember one of the books assigned to the 101 students in Bible college was Lewis’ Mere Christianity. As I became more interested in Lewis’ work, I did some more digging through his material.
