Good word from Gavin Ortlund on the humility of C.S. Lewis’ writing. Some money quotes:

• “It is not that Lewis lacks learning, but that he finds a way to hide his learning in order to help the reader.”

• “To write clearly is a matter of one’s character even more than one’s brain: it stems from being good more than from being smart. Virtues like charity and humility . . . shape and restrain and reorganize our writing towards clarity and accessibility because they value the edification of the reader above the reputation of the writer.”
