Divine reality is like a fugue

If only for my own reference, I want to duplicate a C.S. Lewis quote that Bob MacDonald published on his blog, Sufficiency.

The quote is from the essay “Evil and God”, published in the book God in the Dock:

Divine reality is like a fugue. All His acts are different, but they all rhyme or echo to one another. It is this that makes Christianity so difficult to talk about. Fix your mind on any one story or any one doctrine and it becomes at once a magnet to which truth and glory come rushing from all levels of being. Our featureless pantheistic unities and glib rationalistic distinctions are alike defeated by the seamless, yet ever varying, texture of reality, the liveness, the elusiveness, the intertwined harmonies of the multi-dimensional fertility of God.
