A…luncheon was held a half century ago in England. The people around the table were [held together] by the bonds of spiritual war. The general topic was comparative religions, which sparked a debate on the question of Christianity’s most valuable distinction. What separated Christianity from every other religion in the world?
One suggested the Incarnation, another the resurrection of Christ. It was pointed out, however, that these two vital features of Christianity were also part of the deities of other religions. C. S. Lewis, who joined the debate late, uttered the answer as soon as he heard the topic of the day. “Oh, that’s easy,” said perhaps the greatest Christian apologist of the twentieth century. “It’s grace.”
