THE FEAR AND TREMBLING LETTER
THE PURPOSE OF PAUL
Let’s start with Paul’s words: Philippians 2:12
“Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS #3:
When scholarly writers of literary apologetics write critically about the writing process, what it means to be a reader, an author, and even their own process as a writer, it is worth taking notice. All the more so when two of those writers happen to be friends, dialoguing and critiquing one another’s work. So it was with CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien, though not as much as popular legend may have liked. Regardless, there is enough within the body of work between these two men to recognize the patterns of similarity and difference in their approach to literary apologetics respectively, as regards general methods of criticism of story, the foundations from myth which both sought in their work, and the inextricable role of “fairy stories” to these writers. This can be a valuable framework for our own understanding of literature as apologetic, how it may be thought to work, and what its value may be to us today.
