“Every year you grow, you will find me bigger.” –Aslan to Lucy in Prince Caspian C. S. Lewis was, of course, a brilliant apologist, and his books contain much to feed your intellect. But Lewis was also very concerned about Christian formation and strongly desired to help believers deepen their faith and broaden their vision of God. In this book Peter Schakel opens to you the more practical parts of Lewis’s wonderful writings. Covering areas of potential struggle such as prayer, suffering, doubt and love, Schakel draws principles from Lewis’s nonfiction as well as illustrations from the Chronicles of Narnia to stir your imagination and soul so that you might see God in new ways. In addition, the author quotes from contemporaries of Lewis, showing how their thinking fit with Lewis’s. With reflection questions included, this deeper look at Lewis’s formational writings is valuable for your personal devotions or for group discussions. Either way, as you read you will find God bigger and bigger.
Reason And Imagination In C S Lewis A Print On Demand Title$26.99Add to cart
The first study of C. S. Lewis to offer a detailed examination of Till We Have Faces, Peter J. Schakel’s new book is also the first to explore the tension between reason and imagination that significantly shaped Lewis’s thinking and writing.
Schakel begins with a close analysis of Till We Have Faces which leads the reader through the plot, clarifying its themes as it discusses structure, symbols, and allusions.
The second part of the book surveys Lewis’s works, tracing the tension between reason and imagination. In the works of the thirties and forties reason is in the ascendant; from the early fifties on, in works such as the Chronicles of Narnia, there is an increased emphasis on imagination – which culminates in the fine “myth retold,” Till We Have Faces. Imagination and reason are reconciled, finally, in works of the early sixties such as A Grief Observed and Letters to Malcolm.
