Every earthly day has a coming darkness.
Every earthly night has a coming dawn.
Heaven has an eternal day – no reason to dread coming night.
Hell has eternal night with no hope of dawn, no hope!

C S Lewis died 11/22/1963. He was born 11/29/1898 in Belfast, Ireland and raised in Christian atmospheres. Around 15 he turned “atheist” partly influenced by his interest in mythology and the occult. In his 30’s he became a Christian – listen to his account: “You must picture me alone in that room in Magdalen, night after night, feeling, whenever my mind lifted even for a second from my work, the steady, unrelenting approach of Him whom I so earnestly desired not to meet. That which I greatly feared had at last come upon me. In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God, and knelt and prayed: perhaps, that night, the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England.”
Lewis taught at both Oxford (1924-1954) and Cambridge (1954-1963). He is known for The Chronicles of Narnia (1950-1956), Screwtape Letters (1942) Mere Christianity, The Great Divorce and more.
