   "Ask for the Bleeding Charity" (28).
   "...the Blessed will say, 'We have never lived anywhere except in Heaven,' and the Lost, 'We were always in Hell.' And both will speak truly" (69).
   "There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, in the end, 'Thy will be done'" (75).
Movie: Looks like there's one in the works which has been repeatedly delayed over the past two years.

My View: Incredible. Loved it, especially interesting in light of the course I'll be taking on eschatology this semester and my most recent theology course on the works of C.S. Lewis's inspiration, G.K. Chesterton. And it's a tiny little thing you can read in a day or two!
