The writings of C. S. Lewis have influenced countless Christians over the course of many decades, offering readers intellectually satisfying answers to life's biggest questions and challenging them to walk in faith and obedience. Mining popular titles such as Mere Christianity and the Chronicles of Narnia, as well as lesser-known works such as Till We Have Faces, The Great Divorce, and the space trilogy, professor Joe Rigney reveals the undercurrents of Lewis's insights that have shaped how his readers view spirituality, sin, and sanctification. Exploring key themes that run throughout Lewis's diverse literary corpus, Rigney offers readers a deeper understanding of how Lewis's fascinating insights on the Christian life can lead them to a deeper awareness of God's presence and work in their own lives.
- Well worth your money and time
I am about halfway done my second listen-through of this book. I have loved the writings of C.S. Lewis immensely over the past number of years. He has always come across as one of the most sane human beings in recent history. Rigney does an amazing job introducing a number of topics that Lewis addresses, and I have found myself thinking long and hard about many things through this book. Very accessible to the lay-reader, and also very helpful to the pastor. Rigney addresses Lewis' writings in a unique way - what it means to become fully human. As we draw nearer to God, we do not become less human, we become more so. This book is well worth your money and your time, and I cannot commend it highly enough.
