C.S. Lewis was was a novelist, poet, academic, literary critic, essayist, and he is probably best known as the author of The Chronicles of Narnia, but he wrote numerous other works, including The Problem of Pain from where the quotes in this series were taken.
“God is both further from us, and nearer to us, than any other being.”
That is a thought that needs to be pondered. In all our human understanding, God is far away, far above us. We know we are not equal to God. Yet, He speaks to us through His Word and is within the hearts of Christians.
What an amazing thought!
