Book cover for Orthodoxy
To accept everything is an exercise, to understand everything a strain. The poet only desires exaltation and expansion, a world to stretch himself in. The poet only asks to get his head into the heavens. It is the logician who seeks to get ...more

Fantastic book. I'm leading my co-workers through this classic on habits, so I read it more through an organizational lens. The stories were engaging and illustrated how understanding, changing, and forming habits can make a big difference. I'm eager ...more

I have started and restarted LOTR so many times, but never completed it. I just recently watched all three films, so it was a lot of fun to read this and compare notes. Many folks have picked fun at Tolkien’s verbosity, but I didn’t feel like there w ...more

My wife and I read this together as assigned reading for our upcoming adoption. Overall, the book was quite informative, and gave us much to consider. However, the lessons are mostly geared toward non-infant adoptions so seemed a bit theoretical. We’ ...more

C.S. Lewis
“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
