Probably best known throughout the world as the author of The Screw Tape Letters or the equally famous Allegory of Love, C.S. Lewis is accepted as an authority in both religious and literary circles. Having served first Oxford and then Cambridge universities as professor of literature and having published over forty books on religious and literary subjects, Professor Lewis is eminently prepared to write an essay like this one commenting on some of the basic assumptions and judgments of manuscript historicity. The editorial board of BYU Studies is delighted to be able to print this essay with the gracious permission of the publisher. It is one of fourteen essays contained in Christian Reflections, a book well worth reading.
