Wordy Wednesday: The Horror of Holiness

I'm reading C.S. Lewis' Till We Have Faces.  More slowly than it deserves, because it is very good and engrossing when I get going.  It sat on my headboard for more than a year; I was quite scared of it.  I'm finding it very, very readable though.

Two short, yet loaded quotes I've been considering ...

"Our real enemy was not a mortal. The room was full of spirits, and the horror of holiness." pg 54

"Would you like to be Redival [your sister]? What? No? Then she's pitiable." pg 69

  1. Surprisingly simple for such a complex book. I really like the quote on the "horror of holiness." Sadly, I have that horror.

  2. I love it when I finally tackle those books that have previously had me trapped in fear. They usually surprise me with being readable, with loads of thoughtful things to think about. And profitable! Happy reading.
