Off the Shelf

It’s just been there sitting on the shelf.

It wasn’t until we received a Christmas card from our solicitor with a quote from St Athanasius’ On the Incarnation that I realised I had gone through Advent without reading it. Tonight I picked it up and started with the Introduction.

It may seem obvious to start with the Introduction, but this is no ordinary introduction. Most readers will have probably read it before, because it is a well known and outstanding essay by C. S. Lewis. It is not so much about Athanasius or this particular work, but rather on the value of reading old books.

If you have not read it before, you simply must. It is readily available online. You can find it here or here or here. Those are just the first three that came up on Google.
