Jesus Creed » Who tells the best atonement story?: "“The story of Christ is simply a true myth: a myth working on us in the same way as the others, but with the tremendous difference that it really happened….it is God’s myth where the others are men’s….The ‘doctrines’ we get out of the true myth are of course less true: they are translations into our concepts and ideas of what God has already expressed in a language more adequate, namely the actual incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection.” (C.S.Lewis to Arthur Greeves, in Collected Letters, volume 1, p.976f.)"
