Pride & Prejudice Theology


Jane Austen on the necessity and the blessing of being conformed to the image of Christ:

JANE: Oh, Lizzy. If only I could see you as happy.  If there were only such another man for you.

ELIZABETH: If you were to give me forty such men, I could never be as happy as you.  Till I have your goodness, I can never have your happiness
