I read The Great Divorce this weekend for the 3rd or 4th or 5th time. Lewis dreams that he dies and takes the bus trip to heaven. When he gets there, all the people from earth look likes ghosts compared to the people who’ve been in heaven. Apparently, sanctification, becoming a real person—-that can or would want to—-stay in heaven, takes a while and is painful. C.S. Lewis never ceases to amaze me. And this little book will leave you reeling. All weekend long I made Stevie listen to the brilliance by quoting one amazing passage after another. Guess what he’s reading now? We do this to each other all the time.
You really should read it.
