T H White - The Once and Future King
Type of Spiritual Experience
Terence Hanbury White (29 May 1906 – 17 January 1964), was an English author best known for his sequence of Arthurian novels, The Once and Future King, first published together in 1958. He came close to marrying several times but had no enduring romantic relationships.
Lin Carter in his book Imaginary Worlds portrayed White as a man who felt deeply but was unable to connect to human relationships due to his unfortunate childhood: "He was a man with an enormous capacity for loving. It shows in his prodigious correspondence and in his affection for dogs and in the bewildered and inarticulate loves his characters experience in his books; but he had few close friends, and no genuine relationship with a woman."
White was, towards the end of his life, a heavy drinker. Warner wrote of him, "Notably free from fearing God, he was basically afraid of the human race."

If God is merciful; I don’t see why he shouldn’t allow people to stumble into heaven, just as well as climb there
