A Biblical Philosophy of Providence in a Science Fiction Novel


"Don't imagine I've been selected to go to Perelandra because I'm anyone in particular. One never can see, or not till long afterwards, why any one was selected for any job. And when one does, it is usually some reason that leaves no room for vanity. Certainly, it is never for what the man himself would have regarded as his chief qualifications."

--C. S. Lewis, Perelandra, which is book 2 of his Space Trilogy, ch. 2
