    Recently I've been reading C.S Lewis' "Mere Christianity" - a book I highly recommend reading if you have not. In my book, C.S. Lewis is one of the greats of the 20th century - an all around brilliant man, apologist, thinker, and writer who has had significant influence on Christians and Christianity.

    One thing that struck me, however, was Lewis' chapters on the Trinity called "The Three-personal God" and "Good infection"

    Here are some quotes from this chapter of interest:

    Those are some of the quotes that got me thinking a bit, and I had certainly never heard such a view of the Holy Spirit before. So, my question is simple: What do you think?

    Do you think Lewis' views are Biblical? Unbiblical? Accurate? Heretic?
