C.S. Lewis once famously commented that he believed in Christianity just like he believed in the sun: “Not only because I see it,” he said, “but because by it I see everything else.”

Each morning, the sun is reborn; each spring, harvests come back to life; after each disappointment, our dashed hopes are reanimated, and soar to even newer heights.
