I found out tonight that Dr. Reynolds, the director of my honors program, was mentored by Sheldon Vanauken.
SHELDON. VANAUKEN. Only the author of A Severe Mercy, the book that has had a more profound impact on my life than almost anything else I’ve encountered in my 21 years, that’s all.
Vanauken, by the way, was mentored by C. S. Lewis.
My life just got a lot cooler.
