STOP AND THINK – We read to know that we are not alone. (C. S. Lewis, British scholar and Christian apologist)

Lewis did not say, “We need to know that we are not alone” although he might very well agree to that. He is encouraging his students to read. When he wrote, he could not have imagined the Internet and the great availability of information outside of books. Yet, it is in reading good books that we discover a world in which we are an integral part.

The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone” (Genesis 2:18). For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone (Romans 14:7).
