By S. Steve Park,William Edgar
Clives Staples Lewis (1898-1963) referred to as his theological writings as that “of a layman and an beginner” who in basic terms tried to restate “ancient and orthodox doctrines.” despite the fact that, S. Steve Park argues that Lewis’s theological reflections are well-informed, considerate and weighty. for example, Lewis’s suggestion of “mere Christianity” always indicates his dedication to “supernaturalism” (vs. naturalism) and "eucatastrophic salvationism” (vs. moral developmentalism) in sharp distinction to many triumphing theologians of his time.
In this ebook, the writer expounded Lewis’s theological writings quite comprehensively and arranged the implications in response to Lewis’s signature literary motif of the adventure in the direction of domestic, in 4 levels: “Away from Home,” “Homeward Turning,” “Home clear of Home,” and “The ultimate Home.” lower than those headings, Lewis’s significant theological and literary subject matters locate illuminating remedies with wealthy contents and penetrating analyses. In so doing, the writer provides to the readers, most likely for the 1st time, a scientific theology of C. S. Lewis. It seems that Lewis, greater than only a storyteller, used to be an important player on the earth of theological reflections, demonstrating himself to be a slightly bold theological brain to be reckoned with.
“Lewis used to be no longer consistently inspired by way of scholarly discussions of his paintings, yet he may absolutely have preferred the best way Park has fixed at the key motif of travelling domestic, and the insightful and fascinating means within which he has expounded it. . . . trip in the direction of Home is a the best option addition to Lewis experiences and should be welcomed through either students and fanatics of his work.”

“Park’s ebook is a wonderful evaluation of Lewis’s theology and apologetics. Its cautious critique is helping me to appreciate larger the relation among Lewis’s notion and Reformed orthodoxy: how they're appropriate and the way they don't seem to be. i'm hoping this ebook gets vast distribution.”

"S. Steve Park . . . has illumined the protean C. S. Lewis--the myth author, the apologist, the theologian in addition to the literary pupil. . . . Park's publication is not any mere paean to Lewis, yet a deeply trained systematic examine of Lewis' theological imaginative and prescient of the pilgrimage from this global to the next. Park has given us a delectable morsel of the 'deeper magic' of C. S. Lewis."
