This lesson carried through over many seasons of various seasoning during her long life."

What Are We to Make of Jesus Christ?

A short essay written by C.S. Lewis in which he considers the various responses humanity has offered in response to the question, "What are we to make of Jesus Christ?" From the notion of great moral teacher to myth and legend, Lewis applies his usual penetrating logic to reach the only conclusion he believes possible.
