The Cambridge Companion to C. S. Lewis (Cambridge Companions to Religion)
by Robert Macswain

Overview -
A distinguished academic, influential Christian apologist, and best-selling author of children's literature, C. S. Lewis is a controversial and enigmatic figure who continues to fascinate, fifty years after his death. This Companion is a comprehensive single-volume study written by an international team of scholars to survey Lewis's career as a literary historian, popular theologian, and creative writer. Twenty-one expert voices from the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, Princeton University, and Wheaton College, among many other places of learning, analyze Lewis's work from theological, philosophical, and literary perspectives. Some chapters consider his professional contribution to fields such as critical theory and intellectual history, while others assess his views on issues including moral knowledge, gender, prayer, war, love, suffering, and Scripture. The final chapters investigate his work as a writer of fiction and poetry. Original in its approach and unique in its scope, this Companion shows that C. S. Lewis was much more than merely the man behind Narnia.

    Notes: It's hard to think of another book that provides such a comprehensive perspective on Lewis's multi-faceted career--and certainly none, to our mind, can rival this Cambridge Companion's distinguished roster of contributors. Alan Jacobs (Original Sin) on the Chronicles of Narnia, Stanley Hauerwas (Peaceable Kingdom) on Lewis's 'Why I Am Not a Pacifist, ' Paul Fiddes (The Creative Suffering of God) on Lewis's theology, Tom Shippey (J.R.R. Tolkien: Author of the Century) on the Space Trilogy: the hardest part, for the reader, is deciding where to begin. Each essay is concise and conversational in tone, filled with rich, original reflections on a theologian, classicist, medievalist, novelist, and poet whose light shines ever brighter with the passing decades.
