After the last quote I put up, I thought it might be worth putting up a second quote that takes a completely different stance, yet with a similar level of assumptiveness.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
– C. S. Lewis
Much more has been said about C. S. Lewis and his views on Christianity than will ever be said of Banville’s character Max Morden, so I won’t elaborate on Lewis too much. I will, however, say that I loved The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
