C. S. Lewis would have loved the Olympics. Its roots sink deep into the ancient mythology that captivated his heart.

Long after he chose to believe the Bible was true, he continued to justify pagan myths as precursors to the Gospel. In his imagination-rich mind, he believed that "Christianity fulfilled paganism," believing that the two were simply a continuous thread of the same evolving story.

The countless similarities between Olympic themes and books by C. S. Lewis remind us that human nature doesn't change with time. In spite of cultural shifts through the ages, humanity faces the same timeless temptation to trade Biblical absolutes for the allure of man-made myths -- titillating tales, spiritual ideals, triumphant power, fleshly sensuality, the vision of peace and unity…

the more things change, the more they remain the same.
