Reading Notes Journals 01/16 C. S. Lewis, “On the Reading of Old Books” Given the choice of only choosing one between modern interpretations of old books and the originals, he would most definitely pick the latter, especially on the topic of theology. I believe that everyone interprets words differently, and that there are details lost in books of summarizations. It should be up to the reader to first define their own meanings of older books before beginning to study interpretations (which may not even be entirely “correct”). All societies of different times have differing beliefs and accepted facts. And even applying to those of today, people make errors. Yet, it should not only be taken into account that some have been proven to be wrong. In my opinion, with consideration of incorrect assumptions, they should be studied carefully together to give an overview of the direction the society was heading, along with that they are important in determining the main values of that time. Lewis began to read Christian classics due to the fact of having great writings that are worth reading. He tried for a while to ignore the “Christian” characteristic of them. However, Lewis began to take note of common themes throughout the ages and between writers, all based on the same scripture.
