As an Oxford don and expert in English literature, C.S. Lewis is quick to point out how the parallelism found in poetry is an important feature of the book of Psalms. When we find in the parallels between God's story and life, and ours, we can be more apt to hear what God is telling us, and better prepared to help others listen, too. Our first conversation about The Tangible Kingdom touches on the difficulties of seeing incongruities between real life with God and the activities of the institutional church, and the hope that comes from reuniting them through relationships.
