Lewis on God as Pure Spirit


For today's WORSHIP QUOTE OF THE WEEK we have a few lines from C. S. Lewis's PERELANDRA, the second book in his celebrated space trilogy.

"Didn't we agree that God is a spirit? Don't you worship Him because He is pure spirit?'"

"Good heavens, no! We worship Him because He is wise and good. There's nothing specially fine about being a spirit. The Devil is a spirit."

- C. S. Lewis, PERELANDRA, Macmillan Company, 1944


Highly recommended for late-summer reading! Start with the first book in the trilogy, OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET.

Have a great week.
