review The Great Divorce 103 C.S. Lewis È 3 review characters The Great Divorce In The Great Divorce CS Lewis's classic vision of the Afterworld the narrator boards a bus on a drizzly English afternoon and embarks on an incredible voyage. I LOVE reading everything CS Lewis I read this book a few years ago and I couldn t put it down The section of the book that stands out most to me is when the main character observes a conversation between two people one who lives in heaven and one who is just visiting to see what it is like The one who lives in heaven had killed someone while he was living on earth and the person visiting could not believe that the murderer had actually made it to heaven The visiting man basically decided that he didn t want to go to heaven if this man was going to be thereand so he left and returned to hell I thought it was very thought provoking especially at that time in my life where I was working through trying to know if I should try to forgive a certain someone in our family who had done some things that were well to say the least seemingly unforgivable I have often pondered on this uestion since I read this book Do I believe in the atonement enough to believe that even a murderer could be forgiven and find a place in heaven at the right hand of God And if I do believe it could I forgive that person also for whatever it may be that he might have done and desire to live there too along side him think about itThis is a WONDERFUL book and I recommend it to EVERYONE Let me know your thoughts Little Boy reading everything CS Lewis I The Wonder of Birds read this book a few years ago and I couldn t put it down The section of the book that stands out most to me is when the main character observes a conversation between two people one who lives in heaven and one who is just visiting to see what it is like The one who lives in heaven had killed someone while he was living on earth and the person visiting could not believe that the murderer had actually made it to heaven The visiting man basically decided that he didn t want to go to heaven if this man was going to be thereand so he left and Fair Trade? Its Prospects as a Poverty Solution returned to hell I thought it was very thought provoking especially at that time in my life where I was working through trying to know if I should try to forgive a certain someone in our family who had done some things that were well to say the least seemingly unforgivable I have often pondered on this uestion since I Fair Trade? Its Prospects As a Poverty Solution read this book Do I believe in the atonement enough to believe that even a murderer could be forgiven and find a place in heaven at the The Furry Trap right hand of God And if I do believe it could I forgive that person also for whatever it may be that he might have done and desire to live there too along side him think about itThis is a WONDERFUL book and I The Last Night of Ballyhoo Atlanta Trilogy #2 recommend it to EVERYONE Let me know your thoughts
