Check out this YouTube video on God Against the gods: What C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien Understood about Myth.
I explain what the definition of Myth is, and Mythopoeia, concepts that Lewis and Tolkien trafficked in — as does the Bible.
Christians don’t need to be afraid of this word, “myth” as if it means the Bible is false or fictional. It doesn’t. It’s about the stories that give meaning and purpose to our lives. Transcendence.
Lewis said, “If God chooses to be mythopoeic, should we choose to be mythopathic?” Find out what that means.
