C.S. Lewis was born on November 29, 1898 - 117 years ago. Most famous for his Chronicles of Narnia books, he was also a deep thinker and Christian apologist. Here is a quote from his book Mere Christianity:
Jesus says, "Give me all of you!!! I don't want so much of your time, so much of your talents & money, of your work. I want YOU!!! I have not come to torment or frustrate the natural man or woman, but to KILL IT! No half measures will do. I don't want to only prune a branch here and a branch there; rather I want the whole tree out! Hand it over to me, the whole outfit, all of your desires, all of your wants and wishes and dreams. Turn them all over to me, give yourself to me and I will make of you an new self -- in my image. Give me yourself and in exchange I will give you Myself. My will, shall become your will. My heart, shall become your heart."
