Importance of Imagination

Just watched The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. When I was hard-hearted, this world of Narnia, the majestic Aslan, and personal characters passed the barriers and defenses that I had held up. Thank you, C.S. Lewis for your imagination, that is not less than truth, but the gateway to truth.

“Because Aslan is in myth, you are able to access truth with your imagination that your mind would have defenses against.”

Kathy Keller

“Do you think I am trying to weave a spell? Perhaps I am; but remember your fairy tales. Spells are used for breaking enchantments as well as for inducing them. And you and I have need of the strongest spell that can be found to wake us from the evil enchantment of worldliness which has been laid upon us for nearly a hundred years. Almost our whole education has been directed to silencing this shy, persistent, inner voice; almost all our modem philosophies have been devised to convince us that the good of man is to be found on this earth.”

C.S. Lewis
