Overview

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.

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.
