Of course, the way we look at it will depend on our views concerning
the "ultimate source of beauty."  Laura's book, with its subtitle
indicating that it was written from the perspective of a "skeptic,"
suggests one way and will mean more to those of us who are skeptics,
atheists, agnositcs, or simply entranced by a certain type of
imaginative fiction, than to those who come at the book from another
perspective.

For me, Laura's book did exactly what you say it did not: it led her,
and many of us, right back to the ultimate source of beauty.

Thank you for joining us, Laura, this discussion and your book have
been great, and have uncovered a lot of long-buried memories of Narnia
for this reader. 

It's time for another conversation to take center stage, but you're
welcome to continue here for as long as you like.
