Overview

C.S. Lewis was not a professional theologian—something he freely admitted. For many years, this lack of official credentials resulted in an unfortunate lack of scholarly engagement with his life and works. Exploring Lewis’ literary, theological, and philosophical genius, Lewis experts such as P.H. Brazier, Chad Walsh, and Walter Hooper fill this longstanding gap. Though written for academics and students, these works are also for ordinary Christians who, like Lewis, don’t have a theology degree. Readers of every background who enjoy Lewis’ fiction, apologetics, and scholarship will also enjoy these creative studies.

In the Logos editions, these volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.

C.S. Lewis and a Problem of Evil: An Investigation of a Pervasive Theme

  • Author: Jerry Root
  • Series: Princeton Theological Monograph Series

  • Pages: 308

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

C.S. Lewis was concerned about an aspect of the problem of evil he called subjectivism: the tendency of one’s perspective to move towards self-referentialism and utilitarianism. In C.S. Lewis and a Problem of Evil, Jerry Root provides a holistic reading of Lewis by walking the reader through all of Lewis’ published work as he argues Lewis’ case against subjectivism. Root also reveals that Lewis consistently employed fiction to make his case, as virtually all of his villains are portrayed as subjectivists. More than an exposition of Lewis, Root shows how the Oxford don’s writings were prophetic, and this book is a timely investigation into the problem of evil today.

Few people know Lewis as well as Jerry Root, and few ideas were more central to Lewis’ thought than his critique of subjectivism.

—Alan Jacobs, author, The Narnian: the Life and Imagination of C.S. Lewis

Few people in the world have a richer knowledge of C.S. Lewis’ works or a more energetic intellectual curiosity than Jerry Root.

He is also visiting professor at Biola University and Talbot Graduate School of Theology in California.

C.S. Lewis—The Work of Christ Revealed focuses on three aspects of Lewis’ theology and philosophy: his doctrine of Scripture, his famous mad, bad, or God argument, and his doctrine of Christological prefigurement. In each area, P.H. Brazier reveals how Lewis innovates within tradition. Brazier traces how Lewis accorded a high revelatory status to Scripture, but ultimately shrank from a theology of inerrancy.

This insightful, thorough, and learned exposition of the quintessence of Lewis’ theology also suggests a reading of his fiction and literary theory, bringing readers back to Lewis again and again.

—Sorina Higgins, book review editor, Sehnsucht: The C.S. Lewis Journal

Crucially, for those evangelicals undecided on aspects of Lewis's theology, Brazier's masterful examination of Lewis on Christology and revelation offers welcome reassurance

—Calvin L. Smith, author, Pentecostal Power

In this rigorous and searching study of the theology of C.S. Lewis, Paul Brazier locates Lewis within the wider context of theological scholarship and shows him to be a theologian to be reckoned with in his own right, rather than simply a popularizer of Christian faith.

Andrew Walker, emeritus professor of theology, religion, and culture, King’s College, University of London

[T]he fact that Lewis was not a professional theologian has led to him being overlooked by those who were most able to engage critically and creatively with his writings. Fortunately . . . a new generation of scholars has taken up the task.

That a writer of C.S. Lewis’ scholarly and literary stature should publish more than a dozen books directly or indirectly defending Christianity is news. That his works should have such wide repercussions is still more significant news, and merits a second thought. What does it mean when his books become best sellers? Does it indicate anything about the intellectual currents of the present time? If so, it seems time to examine more closely the exact kind of Christianity and philosophy presented in Lewis’ writings, and the literary techniques that have brought him into the forefront of authors dealing with religious themes.

Chad Walsh (1914–1991) was a poet and teacher who established himself as the American authority on C.S. Lewis. He was professor of English at Beloit College in Wisconsin and the author of over 20 books. His introduction to theology, Campus Gods on Trial, teaches Christian students how to deal with instructors and classmates who ignore or are ignorant of the basics of theology. C.S. Lewis’ The Four Loves is dedicated to Walsh.

C.S. Lewis took up his apologetic pen because he felt that most theologians spoke jargon. “Any fool can write learned language,” he said, “the vernacular is the real test. If you can’t turn your faith into it, then either you don’t understand it or you don't believe it.” In the infernal correspondence of Screwtape, the haunting myths of his Space Trilogy, and the allegories of Narnia, he brings the reader face to face with transcendental values and existential questions. Richard Cunningham evaluates the different kinds of literature Lewis uses as apologetic instruments, studies the devices and techniques of debate he employs to communicate his faith to unbelievers, and deduces some pertinent principles to help others define and understand the Christian faith.

Richard B. Cunningham is a retired professor of Christian philosophy at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Prior to that he was professor of systematic theology and philosophy of religion at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in Mill Valley, California, and at the Baptist Theological Seminary in Ruschlikon, Switzerland. After his retirement, he served as director of graduate studies and professor of theology and philosophy at the Hong Kong Baptist Theological Seminary.

Discover a livable and decidedly witty lay spirituality from the most amusing Christian intellectual of our time. From his autobiography, Surprised by Joy, and children’s classics, the Chronicles of Narnia, to his poems, and novels, literary criticism, theological explorations, C.S. Lewis laid down a spirituality that the “mere Christian” can live with, Monday through Saturday. In this book William Griffin, renowned Lewis scholar and biographer, captures the spirituality of Lewis’ writings and presents it in a style reminiscent of the Oxford don.

Few people today could have accomplished what William Griffin has done in this work. He has exegeted for us a central feature of the life and thinking of C.S. Lewis, namely, his spirituality . . . and he has done it with zest and aplomb.

—Richard Foster, founder, Renovaré

In previous works, C.S. Lewis has been read and studied as though he were two authors: the writer of Christian apologetics, and then the writer of science fiction and fantasy. This is the first major critical study to examine his work as the creation of a single unique mind.

C.S. Lewis’ extremely popular works of fiction have been widely discussed in terms of the ideas and religious themes they express and defend, but less often in terms of their purely literary qualities. The Longing for a Form corrects this critical imbalance by supplying a theoretical background and detailed close readings, for a better understanding and appreciation of Lewis’ fiction as works of art.

Throughout the book, Peter J. Schakel emphasizes form—as literary kind and as structure—and pays close attention to three themes of particular importance in Lewis as a writer of fiction: objectivism, longing, and the literary artist as creator. Individually, the essays supply fresh insights into the style and meaning of specific works by Lewis. As a group they illustrate a depth, technical skill, and unity of thought and theme which have not previously been accorded Lewis as an artist in fiction.

C.S. Lewis said about the Chronicles of Narnia, “I thought I saw how stories of this kind could steal past a certain inhibition which had paralyzed much of my own religion in childhood. Why did one find it so hard to feel as one was told one ought to feel about God or about the sufferings of Christ? I thought the chief reason was that one was told one ought to. An obligation to feel can freeze feelings. And reverence itself did harm. The whole subject was associated with lowered voices, almost as if it were something medical. But supposing that by casting all these things into an imaginary world, stripping them of their stained-glass and Sunday school associations, one could make them for the first time appear in their real potency? Could one not steal past those watchful dragons?”

Walter Hooper analyzes how Lewis used his fiction to express the core of the Christian religion.

Past Watchful Dragons is a deeply rewarding book.

—James Como, author, Remembering C.S. Lewis and Branches to Heaven: the Geniuses of C.S. Lewis

Walter Hooper became C.S. Lewis’ secretary just prior to Lewis’ death in 1963. Thereafter he was invited to edit Lewis’ literary remains and this has kept him busy ever since.

Word and Story has broken new ground by enlisting well-known scholars in the examination of Lewis’ ideas about language and narrative, both as stated in theory and as exemplified in practice. Never before has such clear, significant, and thorough work in these areas been brought together in one place.

This compilation of 16 essays demonstrates how an awareness of Lewis’ ideas about language and narrative is essential to a full understanding and appreciation of his thought and works. The contributors examine Lewis’ poetry, The Dark Woods, Studies in Words, and other works that have so far received little attention, in addition to more familiar parts of the Lewis canon.

By approaching Lewis primarily as an artist and theorist, not just a Christian apologist, these essays offer new insights into his creative imagination, critical acumen, and his craftsmanship as a writer. One comes away from this book with a fresh vision and with heightened expectation, eager to return to Lewis’ works.

One comes across many observations in this book that evoke the response, not just of an acquiescent nod, but also of further reflection.
