Minister's Moment: The Henry Hyde in All of Us
The Henry Hyde in All of Us
I have just finished reading Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I’m sure most of us are familiar with the gist of the story, even if, like me, you’ve not gotten around to reading it. The tale is in three parts. The main body is the account of the case as told by Dr. Jekyll’s attorney. Following this is a document written by another doctor, a friend of both the attorney and Jekyll. Finally, there is a document left by the central figure in the story, Dr. Jekyll himself. For me, this was the most interesting, for it is a first-person account of the man’s descent from decency into evil.
