Old and New

C.S. Lewis once said that it was a good idea to read old books, for while they made their fair share of mistakes, they usually made different mistakes than we do in our own age. Any other view of history is plain chronological snobbery. So, in this spirit, I recommend the reading of these sermons on 1 John (freshly translated into today’s language) by someone who is surely to be heard. It would be the grossest chronological snobbery not to listen to the fathers of the church.
