A fine collection of essays representing C.S. Lewis at his best and most brilliant. Christianity and Literature; Religion: Reality or Substitute?; The Funeral of a Great Myth; Petitionary Prayer: A Problem Without an Answer: The Seeing Eye.
These are just some of the issues he tackles here. As ever, Lewis’s clear and eloquent mind give plenty of food for thought, especially as he aims his intellectual ammunition at the modern myths still so prevalent in our post-modern culture, and encourages a robust defence of the Christian gospel.

Born in Ireland in 1898, Clives Staples Lewis gained a triple First at Oxford and was Fellow and Tutor at Magdalen College from 1925-54, where among others he was a contemporary of Tolkien. In 1954 he became Professor of Mediaeval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge. C. S. Lewis was for many years an atheist, until his conversion which he memorably described in his autobiography Surprised by Joy: “I gave in, and admitted that God was God … perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England.” He is also celebrated for his famous series of children’s books, the Narnia Chronicles (which have been filmed and broadcast many times), as well as his literary criticism and science fiction. C. S. Lewis died on 22nd November 1963.
