A Voice from the Past - Lewis

But you cannot possibly do that with Christianity, because the Christian story is precisely the story of one grand miracle, the Christian assertion being that what is beyond all space and time, what is uncreated, eternal, came into nature, into human nature, descended into His own universe, and rose again, bringing nature up with Him. It is precisely one great miracle. If you take that away there is nothing specifically Christian left.

C. S. Lewis, 1898-1963, The Grand Miracle, God in the Dock (Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1970, p. 80)

What does this mean for us in understanding our faith? How should we approach life differently because of it?
