  1. Yes, but he’s often not an especially compelling fiction writer. Real life has much that does not seem right and true, but there are layers and levels and hope for growth that go beyond what seems right and true.

    • Marylin, I’ve never read his fiction, so I can’t comment on that. But I do know he was a Christian and a favorite of authors C.S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Madeleine L’Engle. When I read this quote, I saw “true and right” as what the Bible says is true and right. And ever since I started following what the Bible says is true and right, life became simple and wonderful for me. That’s why the quote touched my heart. I think we each read the quote differently, and it’s good to hear your take on it!
