“‘We know nothing of religion here: we think only of Christ.”
from “The Great Divorce” by C. S. Lewis
The quote is from a C. S. Lewis book – The Great Divorce.
Spoiler alert – by clicking on the plus sign below, you’ll see something about this book that isn’t revealed in the book until the end.
I think the best way to read The Great Divorce, if you have the time, is to actually read it twice.
Read it one time, and try to imagine what’s going on. Think about how you would fit in with the scenes being played out in the book.
Then, after you’ve read the whole thing – and know what’s “really” happening – go back and read it again. It will have a whole lot more meaning to you, and a whole lot bigger impact on your life when you read it the second time.
If you’ve seen the movie Sixth Sense – you kind of have a feel for what I mean, on a very small scale. At the end of that movie, I felt like it wasn’t possible – it couldn’t have been what it turned out to be. I was certain I would have noticed a clue somewhere – especially when he was talking to people. I had to watch it again.
This book isn’t exactly like that – but the twist is so unbelievable that you won’t be able to imagine it. In fact – while you’re reading, you’ll be quite sure you got the twist. I can almost promise you – you don’t have it. And when you do get it, at the end, you’ll want to read it one more time.
Just in case your browser / reader doesn’t support the spoiler code – stop reading here if you don’t want to know more about the book until after you’ve read it.
