While sitting in a coffee shop reading C. S. Lewis…

On top of seminary, projects around the house, my wife being out of town, work…it’s the busiest week of the year for those of us in the fireworks business so I barely have time to check the WP reader, let alone write anything new. Not complaing, mind you, I am blessed and wouldn’t trade my life for anything, I’m just crazy busy, and tired.

So here is something a bit older in case you missed it the first time.


“While sitting in a coffee shop reading C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity, I put down the book and wrote in my notebook, ‘the evidence surrounding the claims of Christianity is simply overwhelming.’ I realized that my achievements were ultimately unsatisfying, the approval of man is fleeting, that a carpe diem life lived solely for adventure is just a form of narcissism and idolatry. And so I became a believer in Christ.”

(Kevin, New York City, from the book The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism, by Timothy Keller.)
