Christianity in Culture

"When it [Christianity] tells you to feed the hungry it does not give lessons in cookery. When it tells you to read the Scriptures it does not give you lessons in Hebrew or Greek, or even in English grammar. It was never intended to replace or supersede the ordinary human arts and sciences: it is rather a director which will set them all to the right jobs, and a source of energy which will give them all new life, if only they will put themselves at it's disposal."
- C.S. Lewis
