Walsh - Second Friends

(F)or both (C. S. Lewis and Ronald Knox) Christianity is much more than a doctrinal system: it is above all a personal relationship with Christ that entails romance, struggle, and loyalty. It was important for Knox and Lewis that the mind and the heart converge, that truth could be defended by reason and not simply by an appeal to feelings. At the same time, they realized that the heart needs to prod the mind if notional truths are to become real Truth, a truth upon which a person is willing to risk everything.
