Publishers Description Published in the centenary year of Lewis's birth, The Pilgrim's Guide offers a study of Lewis's witness to the truth of Christianity, especially in his works of fiction and popular apologetics. Written by nineteen leading Lewis scholars and authors, these essays examine Lewis's character and the way he engaged the challenges of the Christian mind, vision, imagination, and understanding in the twentieth century. The studies range from discussions of specific Lewis works to critical interpretations of Lewis's most important theological themes. Also included is a guide to the best books and other resources on Lewis, a timeline that places Lewis's life in the context of history, and a note on the source for Lewis's use of the phrase "mere Christianity."

A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED addition to your CS Lewis library! Apr 27, 2001
Although there are a lot of books about CS Lewis out there, I found this one to be much better than I had anticipated. Rather than being a series of merely academic essays about his work, the authors of these essays do what good critics should do--help one understand the original text on a deeper level. Reading these essays not only helped increase my understanding of Lewis' theology but also deepened my enjoyment of his fictional works. The essay by Root entitled "Tools Inadequate and Incomplete: C.S. Lewis and the Great Religions" was particularly enlightening in articulating how Lewis' perspective on Christianity acknowledges commonalities with the great world religions yet still preserves the unique contribution of Christianity as well. In all, the essays do a great job of synthesizing broad themes (including hell, scientism, language, gnosticism, and grace) across many of C.S. Lewis works, fictional and nonfiction, and have personally helped me in my own journey of faith.
