A unique work …

… Rereading the Indescribable Perelandra | Brandywine Books. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The authorial challenge Lewis takes on here is supremely audacious – to imagine a true state of innocence in a way that won’t be misinterpreted by dirty minds. To describe colors the reader has never seen and tastes he’ll never taste, without sounding precious. To provide a parable of the life by of faith that even skeptics can appreciate – even if they don’t get the point.
