Marking the 50th anniversary of Lewis’ death, The Intellectual World of C. S. Lewis sees leading Christian thinker Alister McGrath offering a fresh approach to understanding the key themes at the centre of Lewis’ theological work and intellectual development.
- Brings together a collection of original essays exploring important themes within Lewis’ work, offering new connections and insights into his theology
- Throws new light on subjects including Lewis’ intellectual development, the uses of images in literature and theology, the place of myth in modern thought, the role of the imagination in making sense of the world, the celebrated ′argument from desire′, and Lewis’ place as an Anglican thinker and a Christian theologian
- Written by Alister McGrath, one of the world’s leading Christian thinkers and authors; this exceptional pairing of McGrath and Lewis brings together the work of two outstanding theologians in one volume
Alister McGrath was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and is now Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University. His writings explore a wide range of topics, at both the popular and scholarly levels, including intellectual history, the relation of science and Christian faith, and the basic themes of Christian theology. He is the author of some of the world’s most widely used textbooks on Christian theology, and has been heavily involved in public debates about the rationality of religious belief. His more academic works deal mainly with the area of “natural theology”, exploring whether there is any link between the world around us and a transcendent or divine realm.
