“[C. S.] Lewis had a gift for presenting truth in a compelling way. One of the reasons he is a master teacher is his love for his subject and his ability to communicate this love to his readers. Even if the student does not have a natural predisposition for the subject taught, the teacher’s love for it will still be transferred to him.” This comes from chapter 5, and boy is this true! A boring, disinterested teacher can completely ruin the content of a student’s favorite class, whereas a teacher who loves his material can make his students also love, or at least appreciate, the content.
