I just came across these words from a Wheaton English prof: "The stories most greatly treasured, and treasured for the longest periods, are those that trace, in bold lines, the outlines of our deepest experiences." G. K. Chesterton pointed to the three great kinds of stories: The Iliad (battle), The Odyssey (journey), and the book of Job (riddle). Battle, journey, and riddle. Most of the time, I think of my own life through the great themes of journey. But battle and riddle certainly fit as well. How about you? Which is a defining metaphor for your life?
