Half-Done Work

“If our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart. And equally, if our heart flatters us, God is greater than our heart. I sometimes pray not for self-knowledge in general but for just so much self-knowledge at the moment as I can bear and use at the moment; the little daily dose. Have we any reason to suppose that total self-knowledge, if it were given us, would be for our good? Children and fools, we are told, should never look at half-done work; and we are not yet, I trust, even half-done. You and I wouldn’t, at all stages, think it wise to tell a pupil exactly what we thought of his quality. It is much more important that he would know what to do next. The unfinished picture would so like to jump off the easel and have a look at itself!” C.S. Lewis

Dr Grant,

We need to order hundreds of copies of Killer Angel. The Lord of hosts is right now going before and defeating every foe in Georgia, bringing State Rep Martin Scott to rally the people of GA in support of HR 536 which contains an amendment to the State Constitution that protects all human life indiscriminately, and defines personhood as beginning at conception and continuing until natural death. We need your help.
