CS Lewis in Defence of Dogma

"The god of whom no dogmas are believed is a mere shadow. He will not produce that fear of the Lord in which wisdom begins and therefore will not produce that love in which it is consummated. There is in the minimal religion nothing that can convince, convert, or console; nothing therefore which can restore vitality to our civilization. It is not costly enough." 

C.S Lewis
(From the essay 'Religion Without  Dogma?' God in the Dock)
