Resurrection People- Day 5

“Resurrection and Re-Creation”

“The picture is not what we expected–though whether it is less or more probable and philosophical on that account is another question.  It is not the picture of an escape from any and every kind of Nature into some unconditioned and utterly transcendent life.  It is the picture of a new human nature, and a new Nature in general, being brought into existence…That is the picture–not of unmaking but of remaking.  The old filed of space, time, matter, and the senses is to be weeded, dug, and sown for a new crop.  We may be tired of that old field: God is not.”

from Miracles, by CS Lewis, p. 155.
