Fern Seed and Elephants

Summary or Keywords

C. S. Lewis tackles the common skeptical charge that the gospels are myth, legend, or fable, pointing out that these are one genre, and the gospels are completely different. Convincingly he makes a point that the one who does not see the difference "hasn't learned to read." He also comments on how poorly critics analyze and understand the authorship process even in contemporary times, so why would their methods be reliable for material written thousands of years ago?
