"If individuals live only seventy years, then a state, or a nation, or a civilization, which may last for a thousand years, is more important than an individual. But if Christianity is true, then the invidual is not only more important but incomparably more important, for he is everlasting and the life of a state or a civilzation, comared with his, is only a moment." (CS Lewis, Mere Christianity, 73)

Anyway, the preparation reminded me of a chapter from Engaging with Keller, which John Dekker briefly reviewed here, but is still on my to read list. Apparently one of the criticisms of Keller is that his theological ideas rest too heavily on parables. Like any methodology, this approach has its dangers, but it seems to me like a useful & powerful pedagogical tool.
