The Grand Miracle

My favorite passage in all of C.S. Lewis’s writings is from his book Miracles. In in the chapter “The Grand Miracle” he compares the Incarnation to a missing part of a novel, or a lost section of a symphony. Here Lewis likens Christianity to the sunrise in that it sheds light on the human experience, an analogy he makes even more eloquently in his essay “Is Theology Poetry.” The following video has audio of the chapter and a wonderful and extremely clever sketch illustration (which I sadly admit I did not make).
