Chapter 1 - The Grey Town

I've wondered about the implication that the Bus Driver must be, well, a Person of the Trinity, and I suspect that CSL was just a little inconsistent here.

In Charles Williams' War in Heaven "Prester John" is described making the same gesture, and the reference to Dante is explicitly given. Well CSL most certainly had read the book, and the "Prester John" character is a messenger, not God (although in a sense a Deus ex machina).

Does this help? Perhaps not, but I do find these links interesting.
