Help! Which work?!

Help! Which work?!

Postby KVerrone » 27 Jun 2007, 21:03

I am planning to teach an ethics course to high school students, and I read somewhere that there is a C.S. Lewis story, an allegory, about a high school dropping mathematics from its curriculum. Although it was a good idea at the time, the long-term effects of dropping math was horrible (people couldn't make change, do their taxes, etc.). The story is meant to serve as Lewis's argument that religion should be taught in schools. Can someone tell me where to find this story?!?!

Welcome, KVerrone!

I believe what you're looking for is the essay 'On the Transmission of Christianity', collected in the book God in the Dock.
Rat! he found breath to whisper, shaking. Are you afraid?
Afraid? murmured the Rat, his eyes shining with unutterable love.
Afraid! Of Him? O, never, never! And yet -- and yet -- O, Mole, I am afraid!
Then the two animals, crouching to the earth, bowed their heads and did worship.
