Christianity is realistic because it says that if there is no truth, there is also no hope; and there can be no truth if there is no adequate base. It is prepared to face the consequences of being proved false and say with Paul: If you find the body of Christ, the discussion is finished; let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die. It leaves absolutely no room for a romantic answer. (The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer, Book 1, p.45)

Did you buy the set the same time I did? Good for you for reading something in it. Right now it looks pretty on my shelves.
Yep. And it was your post that prompted me. I just started about 1 week ago, although I’m going to have to put it down as soon as The Dragon’s Tooth arrives on my doorstep.
My copy of TDT is on its way too. 🙂
