Theology in the Classics

Swiss Family Robinson was one of my favorite boyhood films.  I recently began reading the book and was struck immediately by it’s piety, spiritual understanding and depth.   On the first page, the narrator edifies his children with the following affirmation:

“Dear children,” said I, “if the Lord will, He can save us even from this fearful peril; if not, let us calmly yield our lives into His hand, and think of the joy and blessedness of finding ourselves for ever and ever united in that happy home above.”

I have found in my life that good theology is such a comfort.
