Reading C.S. Lewis
Wesley A. Kort
From the unbending belief in invisible powers that animates Till We Have Faces to the depiction of Aslan’s sacrifice and resurrection in The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, C. S. Lewis’s writing has sparked intense debate about the presence and function of religion in his works. Today, a reader’s opinion of Lewis is more often than not based on his or her perspectives on religion. In Reading C. S. Lewis, Wesley A. Kort examines Lewis’s work as a whole, investigating why and at what points Lewis turns to religion-and particularly to Christianity-in order to advance his argument
If you want to know why some people love him and others don’t without feeling bombarded with his believes then this is the book for you. Reading C.S. Lewis gives you another point of view of one of the greatest writers ever. It’s a neutral discussion of a few of his most recognize writings. If you are a fan read it, if you don’t know anything about him (and I think that’s impossible) then I think you should read at least one of his books first (try The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe its awesome).
This book was given to me by NetGalley and Oxford University Press in exchange of an honest review.
