Worried It Wouldn't Live Up To Itself

Earlier this year my friend Andy L gave me a great early graduation present. He remembered that not only do I love C.S. Lewis, an easy thing to know if you spend a few minutes with me, but I also love Alister McGrath and he therefore bought Alister McGrath’s biography of C.S. Lewis for me. Really a great gift that I am very thankful for. The problem? Well I have been avoiding reading it because I was so worried that I might not like it and I wasn’t sure I could handle it.

Really, I have been putting it off for a few months. What would I do if one of top favorite authors wrote a lousy book about my favorite author? I wasn’t sure I would be able to handle it. I know this is stupid. After all I usually love what Alister McGrath writes. Yet still I avoided it. Well I finished “Turn of the Screw” and thought I should finally man up and start reading it.

I am glad to report that after beginning to read it yesterday I am thus far really enjoying it. Whew. That feels better.

Thanks Andy.
