A Ghost, a Lizard, and "May I Kill It?"

Life is choices, and a book that captures the essence of these choices is a little volume by C.S. Lewis called The Great Divorce (1946). Lewis describes a bus stop on the outskirts of heaven where people (ghosts, really) from Hell can be brought (in a bus, of course), so that they can (if they choose) begin the journey into deeper heaven and eternity. 2,018 more words
