- How should I understand this?Alive to Wonder: Celebrating the Influence of C. S. LewisAlthough Lewis owned a huge library, he possessed few of his own works. His phenomenal memory recorded almost everything he had read except his own writings—an appealing fault. Often when I quoted lines from his own poems he would ask who the author was.

In what sense would he have forefeited his own everlasting life had he been disobedient?When I Don’t Desire God: How to Fight for Joy2:8–9). The word “therefore” means that his obedience unto death was the reason God exalted Christ and gave him the glory he had with the Father before creation. He had come to save sinners.
