C.S. Lewis on the Gospels

“All I am in private life is a literary critic and historian, that’s my job…..And I’m prepared to say on that basis if anyone thinks the Gospels are either legends or novels, then that person is simply showing his incompetence as a literary critic. I’ve read a great many novels and I know a fair amount about the legends that grew up among early people, and I know perfectly well the Gospels are not that kind of stuff.” 


Courage and Godspeed,

Chad
