The Best Pair of Eyes

“Some writers have discovered, and I think more will discover, that Christianity offers them the best pair of eyes. This is not the main reason for being a Christian – one should not worship Christ merely in order to write Hamlet – but the discovery remains valid. To change the metaphor, the Christian lives in the roomiest house available. Writers who become Christians discover that they have only their negations to lose.”

– Chad Walsh, “The Advantages of the Christian Faith for a Writer”
