Why We Still Need Stories

I was deeply moved when I read this recent post by Anna on A Classic Comeback. It perfectly expresses the essential vitality of the relationship between fairy tales / storytelling and the Christian Gospel. So I’m re-blogging the whole piece here. Thanks Anna!

It’s complemented by this short dramatisation of ideas between Tolkien and Lewis:

Both draw inspiration from Tolkien’s essay On Fairy Stories, which I heartily recommend!
