On Purgatory

In AP English my senior year of high school, we read C.S. Lewis's The Great Divorce. As she was explaining (I use the term loosely) the meaning of the book, the teacher commented that Lewis had based it on his "unorthodox" belief in Purgatory. Yay for Presbyterian school, right?

At any rate, I give you Lewis's own discussion of why he believed in Purgatory, in honor of Mrs. Eaves and as a help for anyone who has ever scrambled for clear and concise words with which to explain or defend the doctrine.
