Learning may seem like a trivial act, especially during rough times. However, Lewis concludes that it important to do at all times. He says, "life has never been normal." There are no ideal conditions for learning... people have been forced to learn at all times, even under the worst possible conditions. There is so much you can learn about your faith by learning other things as long as you allow yourself to learn even in difficult situations.
"War makes death real to us: and that would have been regarded as one of its blessings by most of the great Christians of the past. They thought it good for us to be always aware of our mortality. I am inclined to think they are right." I agree with Lewis here. War sets in a sense of reality and urgency. People will not live forever and there is only so much time to witness in this lifetime. Learning should not be discounted, but done in the process of it all because it is important to continue to build our own knowledge and faith while encouraging others to do the same.
