Quote: CS Lewis

"Our business is to present that which is timeless in the particular language of our own age. The bad preacher does exactly the opposite: he takes the ideas of our own age and tricks them out in the traditional language of Christianity."
-  C.S. Lewis

I can think of two questions for myself in response to this quote.  The first one I think I know the answer to. 
#1 What is the language of our age?  I would answer Story; particularly one's personal story
....which leads to question...
#2  What timeless truth(s) is God telling through my story?

I think the real question is: CS Lewis used the phrase "tricks out"?!
