Extreme Makeover of the Soul – C.S. Lewis

CS Lewis


“…as a living house. God comes to rebuild that house … He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on… But presently he starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make sense… The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from he one you thought of — throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were going to be made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.” (from Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis, p. 98)
